Every student at the American University of Leadership Marbella must take several proctored exams (an exam under the supervision of a proctor). A proctored course will be defined as “PA” in the curriculum description, course descriptions, and course syllabus.
A student cannot complete the course unless the required proctored exam is successfully completed.

You may choose either an ‘offline’ proctor free of charge or online proctoring at home, using a webcam and a reliable high-speed internet connection.

Procedures and instructions regarding proctored exams (“The Proctor Process”) are listed below.

Students are strongly encouraged to carefully read and follow the Proctor Process in order to avoid any misunderstandings.


Students taking online courses with a required proctored exam(s) must take their exam(s) at the scheduled time and day as disclosed by the administration. Students can travel to any of the locations where AULM Enrollment officers are present or virtually through Live Video Medium. Students choosing the virtual proctoring service must schedule it in advance with the Administration.

Any student with extenuating circumstances must contact their instructor, in writing, explaining their situation and supplying any needed documentation, no later than 2-3 days (unless directed differently by their instructor) before the scheduled exam. It is the instructor’s right to deny a student a make-up exam or the use of online proctoring.

Any student who requires a make-up proctored exam due to extenuating circumstances must make arrangements with the academic director to take the exam on a different day.


Students opting to use the online proctoring service must supply all of the required items.

1. State issued photo ID (i.e., driver’s license, passport or identification card); non AULM student ID and credit cards are not allowed.

2. A reliable computer running Windows 7 (or higher) or Mac OS X 10 (or higher) and a web camera, microphone and speakers.

3. Sufficient Internet connection and a compatible browser.

4. A secure testing environment that includes a private room without other people present and no posted exam materials.

5. A mirror to show the testing environment.

Accommodations Statement: Any student whose disability falls within the American Disabilities Act (ADA) and requires accommodations should contact the administration. Requests for accommodations should be submitted to the eLearning director within the first two weeks of the course. Once the accommodation letter is received, the eLearning director will insure that the appropriate onsite accommodations have been made for the testing. If the student has selected to the use of the online proctoring service, the same accommodations given for taking courses online will apply.
