Semester-Based (OMO) Courses

Semester-Based OMO Courses: Testing Overview

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.

How to Schedule an Exam

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, all online instructors at UM require students to use ProctorU, a web-based proctoring service, to take their proctored exams. Students are responsible for any fees associated with verification of student identity.

Contact the Distance Education Testing Lab at detl@olemiss.edu if you require additional information or assistance.
