ODU COVID-19 Response for Spring 2021:  More Information >>

Exams During COVID-19 Response

To help our students stay safe and practice social distancing, our faculty are updating their exams to reduce the need for proctoring.

Your instructor will provide updated instructions on how to complete exams for the rest of the semester. This includes all campus classes that are moving online and courses that were already online.

In addition, local colleges, libraries, and testing centers may be closed or have reduced access to services. If you already have an appointment to use a computer lab or face-to-face proctoring, please 1) check to see if the exam still requires it, and 2) contact the location to see if their services are still available.

ODUOnline staff in Washington State and our partners in Arizona can provide proctoring services at certain offices. Please follow these steps:

  1. Identify the location where you plan to take your exam.

I can't use these locations. What should I do?

If you cannot meet a testing center's hours, rules, or conditions, you are encouraged to seek and register a third-party proctor. (Note: Any fees associated with a third-party proctor are your responsibility.)
