Remote students who have a local proctor on file from a previous quarter do not have to reapply unless your relationship with that proctor has changed. Contact exams@rit.edu if you have questions.

Remote students can attend proctored exam sessions at The Wallace Center if they choose by registering at online.rit.edu/exams/.
