College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows students to take an exam from the comfort of home. ProctorU is available 24/7, however, students will need to schedule a proctoring session at least 72 hours in advance to avoid any on-demand scheduling fees. Creating a ProctorU account is simple. You can do so by clicking here.
In order to use ProctorU, students will need a high-speed internet connection, a webcam (internal or external), a windows or apple Operating System, and a government issued photo id. ProctorU recommends that you visit test-it-out.proctoru.com prior to the first proctoring session to test your equipment. We recommend students click on the button that says “connect to a live person” to fully test out your equipment. Please make sure that you are using the current version of your browser.
Additionally, please visit and review the test-taker resource center here. You should expect the startup process with the proctor to take about 10-15 minutes. However, this time will not affect your exam time. Please feel free to direct any questions to the student support team via the live chat within your account.
