Students: All About Proctored Exams

Some courses and programs at SOU require one or more proctored exams during the term. Taking a proctored exam means formally identifying yourself and taking an exam under the supervision of a proctor, either at an authorized testing center or online. It is your responsibility to locate a proctor and to provide information about the proctor to your instructor.

It is very important to find a proctor and reserve a testing time well in advance of the actual date you need to take the exam. Many testing centers book quickly during peak exam times and your instructor will need time to forward testing information to your proctor. It is also your obligation to pay any fees associated with having your exam proctored.
