When Examity must be used for digital proctoring

There may be cases in which Respondus is not suitable solution to the needs of the faculty or students. In order to use Examity, you will need to request approval from the office of the provost. When approved, the university and college will share the cost for use of Examity Automated Premium. For higher levels or digital proctoring needs, the department will be responsible for all digital proctoring fees.
