Respondus Monitor Pricing and Trial

Respondus Monitor

Pricing & Trial

Getting Started

Free Pilot
A free, 2-month pilot lets you try Respondus Monitor at your institution with no obligation.

200 Free Seats
Institutions with a campus-wide license of LockDown Browser receive 200 free seats of Respondus Monitor each year. These seats can be used by themselves, or added to an annual license (see below).


Licensing Options*

Annual Licensing
Pricing for Respondus Monitor is transparent and simple. All universities and schools pay $3950 their first year, regardless of usage. Many institutions will continue at this rate in future years, while those making greater use of the system pay a little more.

1,000 seats (and all first-year licenses)
Each additional 1,000 seats
add $1950
A "seat" is one student per course where Respondus Monitor is used. If a course has four exams that use Respondus Monitor, only one seat is counted per student. If a student uses Respondus Monitor in two courses, it is counted as two seats.
There are NO limits — period. A course can use Respondus Monitor with 3 exams or 30. The length of the exams doesn't matter either
Relax. We'll watch seat usage along the way and let you know if it's getting close to your selected limit. You can also track usage yourself from within the administrator area of Respondus Monitor. If your seat limit is reached, the system will keep allocating new seats for up to one tier level, providing extra time to arrange for the purchase of additional seats.
All institutions have an unlimited license the first year. In future years, most institutions will find the 1,000 seat increments the preferred approach. However, if you require an unlimited license at a fixed price, we are happy to provide a quote.

Student Purchase
Student Purchase is an alternative to the standard annual licensing option described above. With this approach, students purchase a Respondus Monitor seat for $10 per course.

*Respondus Monitor requires a campus-wide license of LockDown Browser (sold separately). Pricing listed is for institutions in the United States. Organizations outside of the US: please request a price quote.
