Proctored Exams

A proctored exam is an exam that is supervised by an approved, neutral person (a proctor) who ensures the identity of the test taker and the integrity of the test-taking environment. Some RPCC instructors require proctored testing for online course exams and make-up exams.

Students have two options for taking proctored exams: on-campus proctoring in the Library (free service) or online proctoring through ProctorU (paid service).

ProctorU information and fees

Students are responsible for all exam fees for each exam

Log into Canvas and go to the Proctored Testing course site or the Library Services course site to see ProctorU fees.

Scheduling a ProctorU exam at least 72 hours prior to the test time will cost less than scheduling at the last minute.

Students will need the following to utilize ProctorU services:

  • Webcam with 640×480 video pixel resolution and microphone on a working computer
  • High Speed Internet
  • Well-lit room with no other people in the room
  • Two forms of photo identification
  • A credit or debit card to pay for the appointment during the scheduling process

RPCC does not provide computers with webcams. Students who have their own laptops may reserve a Study Room in the Library as a quiet place to take their ProctorU exam.

ProctorU Requirements:

Students should contact their instructor regarding tests proctored by ProctorU. Only instructors can authorize and upload a ProctorU test for students.


Proctored testing offered on RPCC campus

RPCC offers free, in-person proctoring by appointment only on the RPCC main campus. Students can schedule a seat for an on-campus proctoring session through the Canvas course site called “RPCC Proctored Testing.”

Information about available sessions and how to schedule an on-campus proctored test can be found on the RPCC Proctored Testing course site in Canvas or on the Library Proctored Testing page.
