Do You Need Equipment for Online Exam Proctoring?
computer If you are on the University of Arkansas campus and need to check out a laptop with an integrated webcam, you can do so at the Student Technology Center in the Union. They have a large number of laptops available. Go to the “Reserve IT Website” link below, log in and reserve your equipment.

Reserve IT Website . (Select Laptop One-Day)

***It is not recommended to use a computer lab for online proctoring because it is a less controlled environment. Please reserve a new laptop if at all possible from the STC. However, if you do need to use a computer lab as a backup for online exam proctoring please use the Union computer lab. ***

Internet Connection Best Practices:
no wifi

If possible, use a ethernet cable connection for your exam session. Wireless (“WiFi”) works, but is not as reliable as using an internet cable.

If you are on campus and have to use wireless, use the UARK Wi-Fi connection instead of UARK Guest Wi-Fi. ProctorU connection will not work with the UARK Guest Wi-Fi network.
