Proctoring with DSP

The DSP Proctoring Office is a semi-independent unit of the Disables Students' Program. We are located in a different building and we use separate databases and email. For all proctoring issues, please email proctoring@berkeley.edu and be sure to include the 5-digit Course Catalog Number (CCN) associated with the class in the subject line to ensure a quicker response.

Please read these instructions very carefully to avoid any complications with your DSP Proctoring Request.

Notes:

Setting up Proctoring through DSP

  1. You will only be able to submit ONE Proctoring Request Form each semester for EACH 5-digit Course Catalog Number (CCN). You must include all quizzes, midterms, and finals for the whole semester when you submit your request. If you need to make any changes to your request please email proctoring@berkeley.edu.

  2. For cross-listed classes, you must submit a separate online request form for each 5-digit CCN.

  3. After you submit your request you will receive an email that will include a list of students in your class who have submitted their Letters of Accommodations (LOAs) and who qualify for exam-related accommodations. Please reply to that email to add students if you receive additional LOAs after your request is submitted.

  4. You will receive a confirmation email approximately 8-10 business days prior to the scheduled exam. This email will include each student’s name, testing time, and their testing location on labels. Please communicate with each student their testing time to be sure it doesn't conflict with another exam. Any changes to exam details need to be arranged between the faculty and the student and the faculty must notify us in writing via email of these changes. DO NOT HAVE ANY STUDENTS CONTACT US DIRECTLY.

  5. At this time, we are unable to proctor any exams administered on bCourses, or any online exams.  For assistance with setting up an assessment option on bCourses or fully online courses, please contact Digital Learning Services.
