The Department of Mathematics and Statistics, in accordance with UMass Amherst, promotes the integrity and security of its courses. To further secure its courses, the department will require one (or more) proctored exams during the midterm and final exam periods. Students who enroll in affected online courses will have to take a proctored midterm and/or final exam within the scheduled exam time frame. Off-campus proctoring will require either a webcam or travel to an accredited testing center. All proctoring arrangements must be in place and approved by the instructor and math department no later than the last day of add/drop for the course. To help you start your search for a remote proctor, please start by searching the National College Testing Associations (NCTA website) that lists accredited testing centers.

If you are having trouble finding a proctor, you can reach out to your instructor.
