What is a proctored exam? 

A proctored exam is one that is overseen by an impartial individual (called a proctor) who monitors or supervises a student while they are taking an exam. The proctor ensures the security and integrity of the exam process.

How do I know if I need a proctored exam?

Check your course syllabus as soon as you can access your online course. The need to take proctored exams and your exam dates should be contained there. If you cannot make a determination from the syllabus, contact your professor immediately for an answer.
