Student identity verification procedures

All students’ identities are confirmed by photo ID prior to sitting for each proctored exam. Student privacy during a proctored exam at a distance is maintained through direct communication and the use of a secure testing service. Students testing at a distance are informed through our website and through email that there are additional costs associated with taking a proctored exam through ProctorU. UD Online staff, distance testing proctors and UD’s Academic Technology Services via the Central Authentication System (CAS) ensure the consistent application of the above student verification procedures.

Location-Specific Details are Listed Below

All distance learning students who are not living in Delaware will take their UD Online exams via ProctorU.com.

ProctorU is a secure, live, online proctoring service that allows exam takers to complete their assessment at home. Students log in using their own microphone and webcam and pay a per-exam fee. Visit ProctorU.com to see how it works and review technical requirements.

Full-time campus-based University of Delaware students do not use ProctorU for their online exams.
