Proctored Exams for Incarcerated Students
All NationsUniversity® degree students must successfully complete a series of proctored examinations administered in accordance with NU policies and procedures. Only Certified proctors can administer these comprehensive exams.
For undergraduate students, the Proctored Comprehensive Exams (PCE) will be taken upon completion of BRS 3, BRS 19, BRS 22, and BRS 24. Students who receive transfer credit for BRS 22 and BRS 24 will be exempt from the Proctored Comprehensive Exams that follow these courses.
Graduate students will be required to take two Qualifying Proctored Comprehensive Exams following completion of M 2 and M 4. The exams are required for the M.R.S. The M.R.S. student shall also take a final comprehensive exam after the completion of all course work and prior to writing the Capstone Essays.
Students are responsible for selecting a potential proctor. Roommates, fellow students, friends, spouse, or other family members are not candidates for proctors.
A certified proctor is someone who has agreed to uphold a standard or code of ethics and has been approved by NU. Professionals who are government officials, military personnel, public, college or prison librarians, prison educational department employees, human resource personnel, guidance counselors, lawyers, teachers, and clergy will be considered.
Prospective proctors apply online after reading the information found on our Proctors page (www.nationsu.org) under Proctor Instructions or look for it in the green footer of every page.
