ProctorU is a live online proctoring service for students taking exams online. ProctorU uses a three-step process to replicate the face-to-face proctoring experience over the internet to ensure academic integrity in SJSU's online courses. 

This service is only available to courses that are taught completely online. This is verified by the course mode as noted on MySJSU (Modes: 1,2,10). ProctorU is only for use for high stakes exams, such as Midterms and Final Exams. Please contact if you are interested in using ProctorU or have any questions related to ProctorU.
