Proctor Application

Is there a training period for new proctors?

Yes, proctors are expected to attend a three-day training period in August just before new student move-in day. Trainings are full-day and comprehensive, featuring resources from support offices (University Health Services, Academic Resource Center, Advising Programs Office).

Are there dates I must be in residence throughout the year?

Yes, proctors are generally expected to be present during the entire year, until spring exams conclude. There are also several required in-residence dates – including monthly meetings with one’s resident dean – when travel away from campus is restricted.

What should I expect from my proctor interview?

First round interviews are approximately half an hour in length and are usually a conversation about the position, your fit for it, and may include a response to a typical scenario that might play out in a first-year dorm among students.

What if my University affiliation is pending?

If your affiliation is unconfirmed, please let us know by May 1, or as soon as possible, if you are admitted to your graduate program or begin an exempt-level position. Unfortunately, we are unable to interview candidates whose affiliation is not confirmed.

Can my partner also apply to be a Resident Tutor or Proctor? What does he or she need to submit?

Yes. If a partner is also applying, your information must be submitted within the same application.  Once you indicate you are applying as a couple the application will include space for both individuals.  An application can be saved and submitted at a later date. 

If one partner has a HUID then both can apply on the application.  If neither has a HUID then applicants can obtain an “XID” prior to applying. The instructions for obtaining an XID are on the landing page of the online application.
