Proctored Exams

All exams within our online microbiology graduate programs are proctored to maintain the academic integrity of the department, the university, and the degree or certificate you are earning. You will take all of your exams online, anywhere with internet access. Your professors will establish the exam time and any requirements. The following checklist can help you prepare to use UF’s proctor service:
