How proctoring works:

  1. Please visit the National College Testing Association (NCTA) website for a list of approved proctoring sites. Once you select the proctor site that is most convenient to you, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CALL THE SITE AND MAKE A RESERVATION FOR TESTING.
  2. At least 10 days before your exam, fill out and submit the online nomination form below to notify NYU Tandon Online of your proctoring arrangement.
  3. Once we confirm your appointment for proctoring, we will then send your exam to the proctor site.
  4. You take the exam as scheduled and the completed exam will be sent to NYU Tandon Online by the proctor site.

A few things you need to know about proctor sites:

  • Proctor sites MAY charge fees for their services. Students are responsible for paying all fees for proctoring. If you plan to use an alternate site, you should ask that site if a fee is charged when you call for an appointment.
  • You must schedule and reserve a testing date for each proctored exam, even if you return to the same proctor for the second exam.
  • If you have any questions regarding proctoring, please contact
