Proctored Exams

The University of New Mexico Testing Center offers proctoring services for distance education courses. We are available to proctor paper/pencil exams as well as on-line exams.

Proctoring services provided by UNM Testing Center for UNM Online classes are not subject to a proctoring fee.  Alternative locations may charge a fee, so please check with your provider.  At the UNM Testing Center, proctoring is done by appointment only.  Seats are limited and appointments must be scheduled 1-2 weeks in advance.

Instructors need to contact the Testing Center at the start of the term to confirm proctor availability.

Procedure for External Proctored Exams (Paper/Pencil Exam or Computer/On-line Testing):

  • Schedule an appointment to take your exam with the UNM Test Administrator at least 2-3 weeks in advance.
  • Check with the school and/or test administrator to verify that all necessary testing materials such as exams and/or passwords have been sent/received at least 1-2 days before your scheduled appointment.
  • Inform the school/instructor to e-mail the UNM Test Administrator directly and to put your name (examinee's name) in the subject line for all e-mail correspondence.

If your school/institution does not send the exam, username, password, or other necessary instructions to administer your exam, your scheduled appointment will be postponed.  We will need to reschedule your exam for another test date.
