Optical Scanning Information


Effective July 1, 2020 optical scanning services are no longer available at UMSL.

This decision was not made lightly but given the budget reduction that were required this service is no longer available.  Information Technology Services is researching other alternatives.


Each exam or evaluation that is either dropped off or sent over to us will be logged into our Remedy system.  This will provide the instructor with a record that we have received your exam or evaluation.  If someone is dropping off or picking up an exam or evaluation on your behalf, please list their name on the Optical Scanning Services Form.  You may be asked to show a photo ID.  If you are requesting your forms be mailed back to you via campus mail, please provide a self-addressed envelope for us to use.

As a general rule you will receive exam results within 2 business days, and evaluation results within 2 weeks.
