Almost ready to take your exam? Or even study a bit more…
Read more about the do's & don'ts for your upcoming exam, as well as our exam technological and academic integrity requirements.
Before starting an exam, ensure you meet all of the following technological requirements:
Proctorio does not support Linux or Chrome OS.
iPad, tablets, and cell phones do not meet our requirements.
Hot spots are not recommended.
Pop-Up Blocker must be disabled
Computer should be connected to a power source
Dual monitors, phones, and headphones are not permitted for use.
Always remember to disable any VPN (Virtual Private Network) on your device before taking an exam
We require that you use our exam proctoring service, Proctorio, to ensure academic integrity during exams. You can access the proctoring service by clicking the teal “Start” button for your exam and following the prompts.
Before starting your exam with our proctoring service, you will be required to show a valid photo ID to the camera as proof of your identity.
The most common types of photo ID are a driver's license/state ID or a passport.
If you do not have these types of ID, you can use another form of identification as long as it shows a picture of you and your full name (examples include a student ID, military ID or similar).
Failure to show a valid form of ID may result in your exam being flagged as violating Outlier's Academic Integrity policy.
Our team will review any flags and reach out to individuals that were not unable to provide valid identification. Failure to respond to our outreach or provide an ID in a timely manner may result in a 0% grade on your exam.
What to Use and Not Use on an Exam

If you are using a blank sheet of paper, it must be held up to the camera before starting your exam.
This is enforced by our proctoring service. Learn more about our Academic Integrity policy here.
