An exam invigilator is a person or an organization that is authorized by AU to oversee the writing of an exam. When you write an AU exam, your exam invigilator will be provided with specific guidelines to follow. These guidelines can include the amount of time you are permitted to write, whether or not you can access a calculator, and any other specific conditions.
Invigilators are also charged with the responsibility of safeguarding your exam and ensuring that you do not have access to it outside of the scheduled exam period.
AU’s Exam Invigilation Network contains a comprehensive listing of established exam invigilators. If you live within 100 km of an established exam invigilator, you must write your exam with that invigilator.

If you can’t find an exam invigilator within 100 km of your residence, then you can request to have an invigilator established. An exam invigilator must be one of the following:
An exam invigilator cannot be a friend, a relative, a co-worker, an immediate supervisor, an AU student (unless otherwise approved by AU), a student from another school (unless otherwise approved by AU), or someone that resides at the same address as the student.
If you are having difficulties finding an invigilator, our Examination Services Unit will help you to identify potential invigilators in your area. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Most invigilators charge a fee for their services. You are responsible for paying any fees that an invigilator charges for supervising your exam.
Note that if you are writing your exam in our Edmonton or Calgary locations, there is no fee assessed for invigilation, but you may be subject to an exam rebooking fee if you reschedule your exam.
