The Mizzou campus, as well as Mizzou Online’s Exam Center, are not available for in-person appointments. We are unable to mail or UPS tests to external locations due to the indefinite closure of the Mizzou Online Exam Center.


If exams are required for your course, your options will be an online proctoring service, Proctorio, or an Alternative Assessment determined by your instructor. Please review how these options work using the links below before making your request.


  • You must be eligible to take your exam at time of your request.
  • We require two business days advance notice.

Alternative Assessment
