Proctoring Services

Proctoring services are available at Alabama A&M University during regularly scheduled testing sessions.

A proctored exam is an exam that is administered by an individual who supervises the student while they are taking the exam.
The use of proctoring services is to ensure the integrity and security of the exam in a secure environment.

Alabama A&M University is a member of the National College Testing Consortium which provides proctoring services for AAMU students enrolled in online courses and students attending other colleges and universities (non-AAMU students).
Institutions across the nation utilize Alabama A&M University as a testing site.

Alabama A&M University's Testing Services provides free test proctoring for Alabama A&M University students who can attend specific testing sessions on campus at the Testing Lab.

Students needing this service should make an appointment as soon as they become aware of their test dates.
