Off-Campus & Remote Testing 


Some assessments in your online course might require the use of the SmarterProctoring Platform. Depending on the options your instructor chooses, you may be able to take the test using automated proctoring, schedule a face-to-face proctoring session with your instructor or TA, or schedule a proctoring session with the UMSL Testing Center or other approved test sites.

Off-Campus Testing Centers

Students residing at a distance from campus may also take exams under the supervision of an approved proctor. Students may have the option to select an approved testing center near their location during the SmarterProctoring registration process.  

If SmarterProctoring does not populate any nearby test sites, it is the responsibility of the student to locate a test center or individual that offers proctoring services. Once you have located a proctor, submit an Offsite Testing Request Form at least one week in advance of the anticipated test date. Approval is dependent on the prospective proctor returning a form that we send them.
