Exam guidelines and scheduling

UD Online students take their exams at the UD campuses in Newark, Dover or Georgetown; at other pre-approved testing locations in Delaware; or via ProctorU.com, a live, online exam proctoring service.

Student learning assessment

Students are required to complete direct learning assessments (e.g., exams, assignments) as well as the online course evaluation at the conclusion of the course

  • Exams given in Georgetown and Dover are administered on the Wednesday of the exam week specified for each course, as submitted by each course instructor to UD Online before the semester begins. Please see the course timeline to determine when your course’s exam dates are due.
  • Newark students take their exams at the UD Online Resource Center on a walk-in basis on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday during the exam week you designate.
  • Students testing via ProctorU.com take their exams on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday during the exam week specified for each course, as submitted by each course instructor to UD Online before the semester begins.

Submitting your exam

In order for your course exams to be duplicated and distributed to non-Newark students enrolled in your distance learning class, course exams are due to the UD Online office three weeks prior to the scheduled exam date.  The UD Online office will contact each instructor to request the coming semester’s exam dates. Please contact UD Online exam staff at 302-831-1500 or udonline-exams@udel.edu with any exam questions.
