Faculty Instructions

This page provides information for setting up your exam in ProctorU, so that students can begin scheduling dates/times to complete the exam.

Student Prep Verbiage (If you plan on using ProctorU, copy and paste this verbiage into your Syllabus or Important Course Information in eLearning or link to this page:  Student Help with ProctorU.)

ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows you to take your exam from the comfort of your home. ProctorU is available 24/7, however you will need to schedule your proctoring session at least 72 hours in advance to avoid any on demand scheduling fees. Creating a ProctorU account is very simple. All you will need to do is visit (https://go.proctoru.com/session/new).

Please be sure to review the Exam Readiness Guide located at the following link to prepare yourself and your workspace for your appointment. (https://www.proctoru.com/exam-readiness-guide)
 
ProctorU also provides free technical support to ensure you have the best testing situation possible. That is available at (http://www.proctoru.com/testitout). On this page you will also be able to test your equipment, learn about what to expect during your proctoring session, and ask any questions you may have about the proctoring process with a ProctorU representative.
  
In order to use ProctorU you will need to have a high-speed internet connection, a webcam (internal or external), a Windows or Mac Operating System, and a government issued photo ID. ProctorU recommends that you visit proctoru.com/testitout prior to your proctoring session to test your equipment. For additional technical services needed before your exam, you can click on the button that says “Connect to a Live Person".
