Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

Proctor Information

Certain DSU courses may require proctoring such as the use of an internet browser that locks down the testing environment and may require a webcam in order to complete exams/quizzes. Proctoring (via online or face-to-face methods), essentially monitors a student as an exam is being taken and ensures that academic integrity is maintained. Please make sure to check the course syllabus or D2L regarding the specific requirements for proctoring of exams as they may vary by course/faculty. Students will be responsible for any proctoring expenses, if applicable.
