What is a Proctored Exam?
Participating UNC system universities may use UNC Online for proctored exams in web-based, asynchronous courses.
Some web-based, asynchronous courses require students to take exams in a supervised environment. This helps instructors verify online students’ identities and ensures academic integrity.
- Students with online+paper or paper exams must take exams with an approved face-to-face proctor from the UNC Online Proctoring Network.
- Students with online exams can select between a face-to-face proctor or the "Take Your Exam Via WebCam Proctor" with the new online proctor, Examity. Examity’s proctoring service is built around distinct time zones, ensuring that testers have comprehensive availability, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, including weekends and holidays.
