ProctorU is a company that offers live Internet proctoring via webcam. You create an account with ProctorU and reserve a time slot for your exam. When you log back into the site for your exam appointment, a proctor makes a connection with your computer and supervises you while you take your test.
ProctorU charges $25 for a 2-hour exam. Additional fees exist for longer exams and appointments scheduled less than four days ahead of time. You need a webcam with a microphone and a good Internet connection to use ProctorU. You may purchase a webcam from any retail store, use one already built into your computer, or you may use an external webcam you already own. Please watch the demonstration video and visit www.proctoru.com/troy for more information.

Third party testing center
A third party testing center can be located at another college or university, or at a company that offers tutoring and testing services. Military students may also use testing services at the education centers on military installations.
To find a third party testing center near you, do an Internet search for local colleges or companies like Sylvan Learning Center or Prometrics. Contact these places to see if they are able to proctor tests for distance learning students. If you want to use a testing center at another school, it must be an actual testing facility or office, with computers and staff designated only for testing. All testing centers must be approved through eTROY.
Here are some examples of third party testing centers that eTROY has approved in the past:
Testing centers charge fees ranging from around $20 to $70 per exam. They are often only open during business hours, so plan to schedule your exam accordingly.
Many TROY campuses and sites offer proctoring in their offices if they have the necessary staffing. Students should contact their nearest site to ensure availability before attempting to submit the Course Exam Proctor Form indicating that site as their proctor. Each TROY site has a designated proctor, and only this proctor may be used. No other TROY faculty or staff may serve as a proctor.
