Testing Services

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 (DETL) at if you require additional information or assistance.

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
