Exams in online courses may require online proctoring, face-to-face proctoring or no proctoring. More information about proctored exams is outlined below. Please review your course syllabus and/or contact your instructor for more information.
Online proctoring involves the use of technology to record student activity while taking an exam. It requires access to a computer with internet connectivity, a microphone, and a webcam. Online proctoring is available and being used in some online courses beginning in Summer 2013. Check your course syllabus to determine if online proctoring is being used in your course and/or ask your instructor. If online proctoring is being used for your exams, information regarding how to access the service and expectations associated with an approved test environment should appear in your course.

If your instructor does require face-to-face proctoring, please complete the following steps:
Support is available Monday-Friday from 8am - 5pm.
