A limited number of Mizzou Online courses offer online remote proctoring service through Examity. The Examity option will only appear in eligible courses as a testing option under the Request an Exam link of the course menu.

This service will charge you a proctoring fee based on the length of the test and how far in advance you make the appointment. We recommended that you schedule appointments a minimum of 72 hours (3 days) in advance to avoid paying additional premium service fees and to ensure you obtain an appointment that suits your personal schedule.

Fees

Standard Fee for exams lasting 90 – 120 minutes: $12.50

On Demand Scheduling Fee:

Appointments made with less than 24 hours advance notice will accrue an additional $5.00 extra per exam AND are subject to availability

Cancellation/Rescheduling fee:

$5.00 of the pre-paid appointment fee will NOT be refunded for tests cancelled or rescheduled within 24 hours of the existing appointment
