Undergraduate Examinations and Proctors
Most Guided Study (GS) and online (OL) courses, not including nursing, require one proctored midterm and one proctored final or final project; e-Pack® (EP) and FlashTrack® (FT) courses require a proctored final only. All course semesters (GS, OL, EP, FT) are 12 weeks long. Make sure you are ready to complete the texts on your scheduled test day, because once the pen/paper test seal is broken or the online test link is accessed, the test will be graded on the work completed.
Verify the Format of your Examinations
First, check your course space to determine the format of your examinations: pen/paper vs. online/proctored through our Online Proctor Service (OPS). The OPS allows you to take your proctored exam(s) in the privacy of your own home with a web camera. The link for scheduling an appointment with our OPS vendor (ProctorU) is in your course space. If you cannot complete your exams online, you must locate a proctor for the pen/paper examinations and submit a Proctor Request Form by the end of the first week of the semester.
