Off-Campus – Proctored Exam for Auburn Students

Please note: Third-party proctoring is provided by outside vendors on a fee basis paid directly to that vendor. Third-party proctors are not a Biggio Center or Auburn University service. By default, third-party vendors are paid by the student taking the exam. Your department may choose the option to pre-pay proctoring fees.

Prior to a student being able to take their exam with a third-party proctor, that exam must be setup with the proctor by the instructor. Third-party proctoring does not require Canvas, while some proctors do have the option of integrating with your Canvas course, exams may be setup directly with the proctoring service.

The proctor must be one of the following:

  • higher education faculty
  • higher education instructor
  • library administrator
  • university testing center staff
  • military education office staff
