Scholarship Applications

Proctored Exams — Midterms & Finals

If you have a proctored midterm and/or final exam in one or more of your Summer 2020 classes, you may need to use a technology-supported tool and/or proctor.

Depending on the class, you may have one or more of these options for technology-supported remote proctoring:

  • Respondus Monitor (RM)
  • Respondus Lockdown Browser (LDB)
  • ProctorU*
    *Required for all MDC Online classes and for some Remote Learning Classes (RLCs).

Contact your instructor for additional details specific to your course.

Important Note: Students will need a laptop and webcam to use most technology-supported remote proctoring tools and services. Chromebooks are not supported by Respondus RM, LDB, or ProctorU. Please notify your instructor if you do not have access to a webcam,  and a windows or mac desktop or laptop computer.

Remote Testing Fees

Students will not be responsible for any fees associated with remote testing for Summer 2020 semester.

  • Costs associated with a student taking any proctored exam/assessment through a technology-supported remote proctor (ProctorU, Respondus Monitor, etc.) will be covered by Miami Dade College for this term only.
