Online Course Proctoring

Teaching & Learning Services provides proctoring services for online students who must take proctored exams, including:

  • Scheduling and administering proctored exam sessions on campus
  • Qualifying local proctors 
  • Securely distributing exams to remote students

On-campus proctoring sessions are for fully online courses only!

  • Online students who live within 30 miles of the RIT campus must take proctored exams on campus. 
  • Remote students who live more than 30 miles from the RIT campus must arrange for a local proctor. 
  • Online students who are eligible for testing accommodation should contact the Disability Services Office at 585.475.5538.

Requesting Proctoring Services

Online faculty who wish to arrange proctoring for an online course, should contact exams@rit.edu by Week 2 of the term.

Tracking Student Completion

The Exam Scheduling System (RIT login required) shows:

Rescheduling

Students may cancel or reschedule an exam through the Exam Scheduling System
