Many UMSL online programs have a blend of exams, papers, projects, and assessment activities that take place completely online. Other courses require students to come to a testing center to take their exams in a proctored environment. If an UMSL student cannot physically come to the UMSL campus to take mandatory exams, the student needs to locate an authorized offsite testing location.
Students must provide their chosen offsite testing location with an Offsite Testing Request Form, to be submitted to UMSL via firstname.lastname@example.org no later than five business days prior to the exam. Once this form is submitted, exam information will be sent directly to the proctor via email. Under no circumstances will exam information or materials be released directly to the student.
Students testing offsite are responsible for any parking or proctoring fees that the offsite testing location may require for external examinees. Questions pertaining to scheudling offsite exams should be directed to the proctor or the offsite testing location, and not to the UMSL Campus Testing Center or to the student's instructor.
