What is a proctoring service?

A Proctoring Service is a service offered to individuals who may need to take a testmonitored by a designated testing proctor during the test session. Our Testing Administration is here to help you and can walk you through any part of the proctoring process. We encourage individuals, faculty and staff members to contact our office with questions or concerns on how to schedule an upcoming proctoring service. The proctoring exams can either be paper-based or computer-based testing. 

How it works


Instructor Approval: If you are a student at the university, the first and most important step is to verify proctoring with your instructor to ensure that you have permission to use proctoring services for your exams. Not all courses allow or require proctoring.

Supervisor/Management/Organization Approval: Before taking the exam, verify with your supervisor/manager if your results will be accepted and approved before scheduling and paying for your exam.


Schedule Appointment: Contact the University Testing Center to schedule an appointment (date and time) for your proctoring service.
