Student Authentication and Proctored Testing

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte complies with SACSCOC policies and requirements regarding Distance Education, including those related to student verification/authentication. Each student enrolled in a UNC Charlotte online course is provided with, and must use, a secure login and password to access and participate in the online course. This method of student verification and authentication complies with SACSCOC’ "Distance and Correspondence Education – Policy Statement."

Online courses taught as part of a UNC Charlotte distance education program may require proctored exams or writing assignments. See your course syllabus for course proctoring information.

The University offers Respondus Monitor, an online test proctoring solution, for assessments conducted in Canvas.   Instructions for how to use Respondus Monitor are available here.
