OMO students must comply with the Proctored Testing Policy for web-based or online courses. If an online or web-based course requires proctored assessments, then it is the responsibility of the individual taking the course to schedule proctored assessments.
Many instructors require their online students to take proctored exams. In that case, information about the test dates will be located in the online course materials. Students close to a UM campus are encouraged to schedule an appointment for a proctored exam at the Oxford or regional campuses.
If a student has a work or class conflict or lives outside of the area and cannot take the exam during the times available, they will need to locate a proctor. Some instructors will require those students to use ProctorU, a web-based proctoring service, to take their proctored exams; while other instructors require students to utilize a proctor at an approved facility. In this case, the student is responsible for locating a test site, scheduling an appointment with that testing center and to accurately communicate this information in a timely manner. Students are responsible for test site fees.
