Testing Services

How to Schedule an Exam
Some instructors may require their online students to take proctored exams. If this is the case, students close to a UM campus are encouraged to schedule an appointment for a proctored exam at the Oxford or regional campuses.

Students will need to contact their instructor about alternate testing options available to them if they live outside the area or cannot take the exam during the times available. The use of Respondus LockDown Browser or ProctorU is at the discretion of the instructor as a means of alternate proctored testing. Students are responsible for any fees associated when using the ProctorU platform for testing.

Contact the Distance Education Testing Lab staff at for more information about testing.

Complaints Procedure

The University of Mississippi seeks to resolve concerns and complaints in a fair and prompt manner. Current or future UM students who have a complaint may submit their concerns to the appropriate department. Before pursuing external options, students should exhaust internal avenues of complaint resolution

Technical Requirements

The university’s IT services keep an updated list of computer recommendations and special technical considerations for online learners.
