Park Distance Learning
Park University requires that a proctored final examination be taken by students, in person, during the last week of instruction for online undergraduate level courses. Online graduate courses may have a proctored final exam or a project due at the discretion of the instructor and the academic department.
Students are responsible for arranging a proctor for their final exam(s). Students can access the Park University Online Proctor Request form, https://proctor.park.edu to request their proctor beginning week 2 of the term. A photo identification will be required by the proctor prior to students receiving the exam.
- At the time of the exam, it is the student's responsibility to thoroughly read and follow all instructions prior to beginning the exam.
- Students may NEVER use a personal computer or a computer they have accessed previously.
- Proctors will closely monitor all test takers.
- Students may NEVER keep or make copies of the final exam and may not leave the testing room prior to the end of the exam unless closely supervised.
- Any/all violations of the Park University proctor or student conduct policies will be investigated and appropriate sanctions levied.
- Proctors must provide "official" business phone numbers and Email addresses. Personal phone and Email contacts will not be accepted.
- If the student has purchased an e-book as the course textbook, it is the student's responsibility to bring all or part of the e-book in printed form to the proctored final exam session to be used if the final is "open-book".
Proctored exams must be taken at a Park University campus center with the following exceptions:
- Students who live or work more than a 60 minute drive from a Park University campus center may request an alternative proctor/location. Please note: Students may be asked to provide proof of residency and to demonstrate their location in relation to a campus center. Violating this policy may result in failing the final exam.
- Students with a documented temporary or permanent disability may request accommodations that allow an alternative proctor/location. All disabilities must first be documented with the Academic Support Center.
