On-Campus Proctoring

Proctored Exams

If your online course includes proctored exams, you will need to schedule an appointment to take an exam supervised by university staff at the UO Online Exam Center located in the Knight Library, Room 19.

Students who require accommodations will need to schedule exams through the Accessible Education Center and will not use our scheduling system.

Before your exam

1. Schedule an appointment

You must reserve a time slot to complete your exam. You can schedule an appointment using the scheduling form linked below. Exam appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Without an appointment, you will not be able to take your exam due to seat availability.

You cannot reserve a time slot more than two weeks in advance of the exam deadline date and can only view available time slots two weeks in advance of the current day. The exam deadline date is the last day to take your exam. We recommend taking your exam before this date.

Example: if your exam deadline is during Week 6, you will have to wait until Week 4 to schedule your exam.

Schedule Appointment

Students who require accommodations will need to schedule exams through the Accessible Education Center.

2. Bring your photo ID, DuckID credentials, and DUO authentication device (usually a personal phone)

Bring a photo ID with you to the exam. You may not begin an exam without proper ID. Exams are delivered through Canvas, so you must know your login credentials (i.e. your UOregon email and password). Exams cannot be administered without DuckID credentials. To access your Canvas course, you will need to use Two-step Login (DUO).

At your appointment

1. Arrive 10 minutes before your exam appointment

Exams may not begin later than 10 minutes after your scheduled appointment. If you arrive more than 10 minutes after your exam’s scheduled start time, it will be considered a forfeited appointment and a new appointment will be required.


Exam Policies

  • Students must work within the Online Exam Center schedule to complete exams. The exam center will not stay open beyond regular hours.
  • Students must arrive no later than 10 minutes after their scheduled appointment. If students arrive more than 10 minutes after their scheduled appointment, it will be considered a forfeited appointment and a new appointment will be required.

  • Students must make a reservation for each of their class exams, up to two weeks in advance of the date of the exam. Exam appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
