Schedule your exam at least 72 hours in advance.
- Login to your ProctorU account and click the "Schedule New Session" button.
- Confirm your institution, term, and exam name, then click "Search Sessions."

Prepare for exam day
This video will walk you through the exam day experience including any best practices. For additional information, read this article to ensure you are prepared for exam day.
Do you have any testing accommodations?
The ProctorU platform is fully ADA compliant. If you require special testing accommodations, I will need to let ProctorU know. Please work with me prior to your exam to make sure your accommodations are noted in their system.
Does it negatively interfere with my computer?
ProctorU does not permanently impact your computer in any way. You will be able to see everything your proctor is doing while you are connected. Once your exam is over and you have closed out of your chat session and video page with ProctorU, it completely removes the screen sharing client from your computer. You may also uninstall the Guardian Browser after each exam session if you choose to do so.
Does ProctorU breach my privacy rights?
