Some online courses require proctored exams. An exam is "proctored" when you take it under the supervision of another person approved by Mizzou Online. Typically this person is an academic professional who is not related to you and who has no vested interest in your performance.

Mizzou has approved exam sites throughout the United States and around the world. You will be able to search for an approved proctor when requesting an exam. We can approve new proctoring sites that meet our criteria. Mizzou Online reserves the right to approve or reject proposed exam proctors or exam locations at any time.

You must be eligible to take your exam at the time of your request.

It is your responsibility to schedule your exams in a timely manner. If you plan to take your exam anywhere other than the Mizzou Online Exam Room, please allow enough time (generally 7-10 business days) for Mizzou Online to process your request and mail your exam to your chosen exam site. Your final exam must be returned to Mizzou Online by your course end date.

Note 8-week courses: for logistical reasons, students in 8-week classes must utilize a test site within the continental U.S.

You have two options for proctors:

  1. the Mizzou Online Exam Room
  2. an approved testing site
  3. Examity online proctoring service (Not available for all courses)
