Respondus is your friend for finals!

If you have finals that need to be proctored, please be prepared to use Respondus.  You are allowed to access Respondus on your own computer, a public library computer, a computer in the Resource Center at MSC Ardmore or any other available computer.  There are no restrictions EXCEPT that whatever computer you use must have a webcam and meet the speed test requirements for the Respondus system.

If you do not have any computer options that allow for use of Respondus, please contact and a coordinator will work with you to schedule a time for Zoom proctoring of your exam.  If you anticipate the need for Zoom proctoring, make this request as soon as possible to allow for proper scheduling.

Thank you and best wishes for great grades this semester,

- The Testing Center

**The link to install Respondus says "Install Lockdown Browser for NSU," but this is the correct link. It says NSU because MSC and NSU are in a consortium to utilize the Respondus software.*
