ProctorU: Instructor

Attention Faculty: We want to inform you that ProctorU has changed the browser extension used for proctored exams. Effective immediately, students will no longer use the ProctorU browser extension to take their exams. Instead, students must download ProctorU's Guardian Browser to take any ProctorU exam. 


Please communicate this change to your students as soon as possible to ensure they are prepared for their exams.


We highly recommend that you remind students to download the Guardian Browser, check their minimum system requirements, and test their equipment before the start of your exam.
