- High school or elementary school teacher, counselor, librarian, or administrator.
- Local or regional librarian.

Designate your ProctorOnce you have identified a qualified proctor, you need to send an email to LOA@apus.edu with the following information:
- Your name
- Student ID
- Your current EMAIL address
- Program level
- Program name
- Proposed graduation date
- Proctor name
- Proctor email address
Confirm your ProctorUpon receiving your information, the Assessment Office will contact your proctor by email to confirm his/her qualifications and eligibility. Your proctor will need to respond to the email by verifying his/her qualifications and confirming his/her agreement to administer the assessment to you. Once the Assessment Office has established proctor eligibility, they will send your assessment information (including a URL and session number) to your proctor.
Watch for your NotificationThe Assessment Office will email you a notification of when assessment instructions have been sent to your proctor.
Complete your LOA(s)Once your proctor has received the instructions and online session number, you will then need to schedule a time to complete your assessment(s). Scheduling your assessment(s) should be handled between you and your proctor. On your scheduled assessment day, you will meet with your proctor and your proctor will log you into the assessment environment.
Confirmation of your LOA CompletionAfter completion of your LOA(s), your proctor should email LOA@apus.edu to confirm that you have completed your assessment(s). Once the Assessment Office has received your proctor’s confirmation, they can clear your LOA requirement for graduation. You can view your clearance on the “My Graduation Info” page inside your campus.
