- The proctor must be employed in the educational field and possess at least a bachelor’s degree.

- Local college staff and librarians often can be used.
- The proctor will be responsible for receiving the information for exams and assignments via e-mail and following the guidelines for administering the exam or assignment (time frame, open- or closed-book exam, or other instructions).
- You will be required to show proof of identity at the time of the exam.
- The proctor will complete the Proctor Affirmation Sheet stating that you did the work and email it to the appropriate parties at Huntington Junior College.
