Examination Services

In Examination Services, we distribute, supervise, and collect your exams. We also maintain the exam invigilation network, reviewing and approving new exam invigilators.

Please note: the Exam Service Unit does not receive your exam when it comes back to AU. Returning exams go to the Course Assistant for your course. For more information on this, contact 1-800-788-9041.

The AU Undergraduate Calendar outlines our examination policies and related information.

Virtual Invigilator


The university has entered into a pilot project with ProctorU to allow you the opportunity to write your online exams from the comfort and convenience of any suitable location with internet access while an invigilator supervises you remotely through the use of a webcam and a high speed internet connection. This will allow you to write your exam at any time and at any location that has suitable internet bandwidth.
