Proctoring with DSP

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

Note: DSP will not proctor any exams during RRR week in alignment with campus policy. 

Setting up Proctoring through DSP

  1. Please submit ONE Proctoring Request Form for EACH Course Control Number (CCN) and be sure to include quizzes, midterms, and finals in your request. DO NOT SUBMIT SEPARATE REQUESTS FOR QUIZZES, MIDTERMS, and FINALS. If you need to make any changes to your request please notify us via email.

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

  3. After you submit your request you will receive an email from DSP Proctoring with instructions. This email will include a list of students in your class who have submitted their Letters of Accommodations (LOAs) and who qualify for DSP Proctoring. Please reply to this email to add students if you receive additional LOAs after your request is submitted. DO NOT SUBMIT ANOTHER ONLINE REQUEST FORM.

  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.
