Test Proctoring by ARC

ARC is glad to be a resource for students and faculty who are in need of having tests proctored for ARC-affiliated students.


For the 2022 spring semester, ARC is provides proctoring via Zoom and in-person proctoring as conditions allow.  If there are special or extenuating circumstances, please email  ARC proctors will provide accommodations in accordance with the student’s accommodation memo, and will exercise due diligence to ensure academic integrity.  If the student has not appeared for their exam within 15 minutes of the start time, the proctoring will be cancelled.  Rescheduling is a possibility, but limitations will apply.  Students are reminded to have their IDs ready to show when they appear for proctoring.

Because of limited resources, we cannot proctor exams that are untimed or have “unlimited time.”

We want the students for whom we proctor exams to have the best possible chance to demonstrate mastery of the subject. Therefore, we cannot act as readers for a test in a foreign language, where our lack of fluency could be detrimental to a student’s academic performance. Similarly, we cannot describe images, diagrams, charts or graphs for students, as our interpretations could adversely influence the student’s answers. If you have a question about how to structure a test with these elements for a student with a disability, we would be happy to discuss it with you in advance of the test.

Due to the high demand for proctoring exams for legitimate disability-related reasons, we cannot provide proctoring for exams rescheduled to facilitate travel, vacations, social events, etc.

For questions, please email the ARC office at


  •  For the regular 2022 Spring semester, ARC proctoring will be available on weekdays between 9 am and 4 pm (3 pm on Fridays) with three business days advance notice.
  • For finals, ARC proctoring will be available each of the weekdays during which finals are scheduled, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm with a scheduling deadline of April 26th for all finals.
  • Professor and student must discuss and agree upon the proctoring date and which testing accommodations mentioned in their memo the student wishes to access BEFORE scheduling with ARC.
  • Advance notice means receipt of the Exam Administration Form — see below, which is to be completed by the instructor.
  • Once set, dates of proctored assessments cannot be changed without the documented agreement of both the instructor and student.

Having read the above advice, the instructor can then complete the Exam Administration Form.

Thank you for your help in making this process as smooth and efficient as possible.
