Important:

UITS recommends that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of an exam. This allows ample time to connect with your proctor and to troubleshoot any technical issues that may arise.

The time it takes you to connect to proctor support and complete the authentication process does not count towards your exam duration.

Notes:
  • You'll need to disable your pop-up blocker to be able to connect with proctor support.
  • If you have issues with the browser extension, your proctor may request keyboard access to manually enter the password.
