In an effort to assess student learning and verify student identity, degree seeking students are required to complete proctored examinations as a part of their program to meet accreditation requirements. Please refer to the specific program requirements for a complete description of any applicable exams. A webcam is required.
In general, students schedule their proctored exams at least 30 days in advance of their desired test date. On test day, the student must present an acceptable, government-issued photo ID that matches the name of the intended examinee. Acceptable forms of ID include passports, driver’s licenses, and military IDs. Proctors will retain a photocopy of the ID and make it available to DSU as needed.
Remote proctoring is available. Acceptable proctoring locations require impartial third parties to serve as proctors. Corporate HR professionals, local libraries, private testing centers, local colleges or universities have been used successfully by other students. The proctor assumes responsibility for maintaining the confidentiality of the test in advance of the testing date, assuring that only authorized materials (when applicable) are allowed in the test site, affirms that identity of the test taker, and returns the exam to the university for grading. For assistance locating a proctor, please contact your advisor.
