HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

High school students participating in a UD Online course should write to udonline-exams@udel.edu and indicate the high school where you will be testing. Please include your name, the course you are taking, and your phone number.


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.
