ProctorU: Instructor

Attention Faculty: We want to inform you that ProctorU has made a change to the browser extension used for proctored exams. Effective immediately, students will no longer use the ProctorU browser extension to take their exams. Instead, students will need to download ProctorU's Guardian Browser to take any ProctorU exam. Students must have the Guardian Browser installed on their computer or laptop in order to take their 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. 


Please be aware that the instructions below may have significant updates before or during the first half of the Summer 2023 semesters.
