Several recommendations before making an appointment:

  • Students must sign up for the online exam at least 4-5 days in advance.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to inform the professor that you will be taking the online exam at the Geauga Campus or Regional Academic Center.
  • Make sure that your professor sends proctoring instructions and access to the online exam instructions as well as the password.
  • Students are required to show a photo ID prior to taking an online exam.  Students without a photo ID will not be allowed to take the exam.
  • If you arrive 15 minutes late to the exam, you will not take the exam and will have to re-schedule another online testing opportunity, pending your professor’s approval.  It will be your responsibility to meet with your professor to determine your eligibility for re-testing.
  • Cell phones, Blackberrys, calculators, I-pods, backpacks, pursues and books will not be allowed in the testing room.
  • If you are permitted to use any exam assistance (such as calculator, open notes, scratch paper, etc.), remind your professor to indicate such assistance on the exam or on the proctoring instructions, otherwise you will not be allowed to use them.
  • Online final exams during Finals Week will need to be scheduled at least five (5) days in advance.

All exams are monitored by trained staff and student proctors in the Office of Academic Services.  If you have any questions, please contact Brandie Blankenship at
