When you purchase the exam, you will choose between in-person or virtual proctoring. Then you will schedule your own exam. If you choose "in-person" proctoring, you will schedule your exam date/time with that proctor and then take the exam in the same room as them. If you choose "virtual" proctoring, you will schedule the exam directly with ProctorU by selecting your name in the upper-right corner > Dashboard > My Tests > Access Exams > and following the instructions from there.
