What are proctored exams?
Proctored exams are exams supervised by an eligible proctor. Check your course syllabus to see if the exams for your course require a proctor, and if so, what type of proctor is acceptable. Most proctors charge a fee.

Your syllabus will indicate exam requirements and acceptable proctoring methods.
There are three ways in which exams are proctored:

- Online exams taken in Blackboard Learn, proctored by an approved on-site (in-person) proctor
- Paper exams administered by an approved on-site (in-person) proctor
