All exams in the online Microbiology & Cell Science program are proctored to maintain the academic integrity of the department, the university, and the degree you are earning. The University of Florida has chosen ProctorU as the proctoring service for this program. You will take all of your exams online, anywhere with internet access. Your professors will establish the exam time and any requirements, and the following checklist can help you prepare to use this service.
Students are responsible for meeting the following technical requirements:
- A reliable computer running Windows XP (or higher) or Mac OS X 10 (or higher)
- A webcam with 640×480 video pixel resolution or higher
- Headphones or working speakers connected to the computer
