Exam Guidelines

for Self-Paced Online Courses

Some courses require the exam to be completed in person with an approved proctor, while others can be completed within the Blackboard eLearning environment. Proctored exams may be taken in your local community under the direct supervision of an approved proctor (e.g., a school superintendent, principal, testing center, college official, or public library official). The Exam Request Form is linked below and additional information about exam delivery is included there. 

  • If you live in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area, you are encouraged to take proctored exams at the Self-Paced Online Courses Office. Please call our office at 319-273-2123 to schedule your exam; you will not need to submit the online request form. 
  • Exams should be taken within one month after the last assignment has been submitted.
  • Examinations cannot be returned to you. A grade slip with instructor comments is sent after the exam is graded.
