We absolutely want to provide support for institutions and students whose lives have been disrupted by this crisis.

The 2018 wildfire season is now the most destructive on record in California’s history. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated and entire communities have been destroyed while over one million acres of land has burned. Most recently, these wildfires have impacted several colleges including Moorpark College, Ventura College, Oxnard College, Butte College and CSU Chico. CSU Chico’s campus is closed and classes are suspended until November 26th. The CSU system has announced that it will extend the application deadline for college applicants from fire-ravaged regions in both Northern and Southern California.

Account Executive at Proctorio, Dave Ernest, stated, "Our thoughts and deepest sympathies continue to be with those that have been impacted by the devastating wildfires in California. We absolutely want to provide support for institutions and students whose lives have been disrupted by this crisis. Proctorio will gladly provide free remote proctoring to any student or institution affected by the wildfires to help maintain learning. It's the least we can do."
