How It Works for Students

  • Choose a Brandman-approved Saylor Academy course (course list above).
  • Work through the course material as outlined on the course page.
  • Complete the Proctored Final Exam using the online proctoring service ProctorU.
  • Request your transcript from Saylor; we will forward it to Brandman.
  • Note: granting of credit is at the discretion of Brandman University. Please check with them for policies and fees! The Saylor Academy is not an accredited institution.


The approved online proctoring service for Saylor Academy final exams is ProctorU. You can find detailed information about their online proctoring services here. There is a $25 fee, payable directly to ProctorU.


Upon passing the proctored exam(s), you may request to have the course(s) added to an official transcript. Saylor Academy will verify the request against the proctored exam results and then deliver it to Brandman. You may request your transcript using the transcript request form (paying attention to the notes, where applicable).

Important Notes

Just as with other Saylor Academy exams, students may attempt an exam more than once, however there will be a 14 day waiting period between attempts. (For ProctorU proctored exams, you will have to pay the $25 fee for each attempt).
