Proctored Testing Steps

Do you need to have an exam proctored? We would love to help! We offer the ParaPro, Miller Analogies Test (MAT), and CLEP as well as proctor exams and tests for many different students, studying at many different schools, for many different subjects and certifications.

For ParaPro, MAT or CLEP steps for proctored testing, please visit the Computer-Based Testing page.

For all other proctored testing, please follow the directions below.

Step 1
As far ahead of your exam date as possible, contact your school, company, or institution (your test sponsor) to advise them that you would like to use UMD’s Remote Proctoring Services. If your test sponsor needs to review UMD Remote Proctoring policies and procedures, they must contact cc-testingoffice@umd.edu. They must also send us the required testing information and materials, using the same email address.

Step 2
Schedule your testing date/time and pay the proctoring fee via online scheduler. Our proctored testing hours are Tuesday through Thursday, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This means that you must complete your exam at or before 3:30 p.m. Remote proctored testing appointments have a one hour minimum. Schedule your testing date/time and pay the proctoring fee via our online scheduler.

Step 3
For Remote Proctoring, you must have a computer with a webcam, microphone, and consistent internet access. You must be able to maintain internet access for the entire duration of your exam. Please verify the good working order of your computer equipment before your exam.

Step 4
Two days before your scheduled appointment; please email cc-testingoffice@umd.edu to assure we have all of the required materials to administer your exam.

Step 5
On the day of your test, please connect to the proctor using the appointment that will be emailed to the address you provided in the registration. Please have a photo ID available, and any materials your institution may permit you to have during your exam such as notes, open book, and so on.
