Proctoring Resources

In some online courses, instructors require supervised attendance at exams. Since it is the student's responsibility to secure a proctoring site that meets instructor approval, it is important to note the following:

  • While free options exist, most proctoring services are offered for a fee
  • In-person proctoring providers typically take reservations 1 to 3 weeks in advance of the exam date

Virtual and in-person proctoring resources are featured below. UNM does not officially endorse any proctoring locations.

Virtual Proctoring

UNM is piloting a virtual proctoring solution, Proctorio. If your instructor has elected to use Proctorio, it will be listed as a course material with the UNM Bookstore. During the Summer 2018 semester, students in Proctorio courses will pay the vendor directly for a course-long pass, in the amount of $20 per course. Proctorio requires the following specifications:

  • Desktop or laptop computer
  • Portable web camera OR built-in laptop camera
  • Microphone headset (best to minimize external noise) OR built-in computer/laptop microphone
  • Minimum Internet connection speed of .092 Mbps (0.663 Mbps is optimal)
  • Minimum recommended RAM of 4GB
  • Download of Chrome Browser (free and open)

If your computer is not configured with a web camera or microphone, these items are available for purchase through the UNM Bookstore with your Bursar account funds.
