ProctorU is a live online proctoring service that allows you to take your assessment from the comfort of your home.  ProctorU is available 24/7, however, you will need to schedule your proctoring session at least 72 hours in advance to avoid any on-demand scheduling fees. Creating a ProctorU account is simple. You can do so by clicking create an account.

In order to use ProctorU, you will need a high-speed internet connection, a webcam (internal or external), a windows or apple Operating System, and a government issued photo id.  ProctorU recommends that you visit https://test-it-out.proctoru.com/ prior to your proctoring session to test your equipment.  We recommend you click on the button that says “connect to a live person” to fully test out your equipment.

Additionally,  please visit and review the test-taker resource center. It is also recommended to watch a walkthrough video to prepare for the day of your exam and a video on the 10 Steps for Test-Takers to Get Started with ProctorU. You should expect the startup process with the proctor to take about 10-15 minutes. However, this time will not affect your exam time. Please feel free to direct any questions to the student support team via the live chat within your account.

Finally, the assessments that ProctorU invigilates are located on BCIT’s The Learning Hub. It is highly recommended to that you take some time to prepare for your online assessment by orientating yourself to this learning environment.
