Academy Introduces New Proctor Solution

Beginning with the Summer 2013 semester scheduled to begin June 1, Academy students will be able to use ProctorU for taking course exams.

The Academy’s regional accrediting agency, the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), has mandated that students who take online tests must undergo appropriate identification and supervision. 

ProctorU meets our online students’ demand to use a reliable and a convenient alternative testing solution. ProctorU allows students to take their tests in the comfort of their own homes and at their own computers without incurring the costs of paying for a human proctor.

Students are required to schedule course examinations three days in advance when using ProctorU. These general usage costs are covered by tuition. However, students can choose the convenience scheduling option for a minimal additional charge that they must pay. 

More information regarding ProctorU will be provided to you in the upcoming student catalog, including recommended computer and software requirements.

Students do have the option to keep using Software Secure’s Remote Proctor Device, which will be phased out Dec. 31.
