Online class rules

Students must adhere to the class rules as outlined below. Violations of class rules may result in a deduction of points on assignments and/or exams.


  • You must have photo identification ready for check-in or you will not be authorized to take the exam. Acceptable photo identification includes a state-issued driver’s license or ID card, WolfCard, or passport (originals only). Proctors may ask to see multiple forms of identification; please be prepared to provide a second form of ID.
  • You must remain within the exam site at all times. Any materials you may be authorized to access will be available in your exam. Attempting to access external websites and/or course materials in your WebCampus course site is never permitted.
  • You may not use notes, calculators, or other materials unless otherwise permitted in the exam instructions. Any unpermitted materials (including smart devices, such as cell phones and smart watches) must be stored away from the testing area. All electronic devices must also be turned off.

Remote proctoring service testing

When testing with the remote proctoring service:

  • You may not leave the webcam viewing area or move your webcam while testing.
  • Exams must be completed alone in a quiet, private location, with no distractions. Turn off your phone, TV, and music. Your testing environment must remain secure throughout the exam. No other individuals may remain in or enter the testing area for the duration of the exam.
  • You must be seated at a desk or table that is clear of all unauthorized materials.
  • You must keep your gaze centered on the screen.
  • Your face and ears must be completely visible at all times. Clothing that obstructs the view of the face and ears—such as hoods, hats, headbands, etc.—are not permitted.
  • Headphones/earbuds are not permitted.
  • You must conduct yourself professionally throughout the duration of the exam. Your exam session will be recorded and reviewed by University staff. Any inappropriate or illicit behaviors will be reported accordingly.
  • Experiencing technical difficulties with the remote proctoring service is not a valid excuse for time extensions on the exam or testing outside of the specified testing dates. Consider taking the exam early in the exam week to ensure that any issues that may arise can be resolved in time for you to complete the exam by the deadline.
