The Mathematics and Statistics department, in accordance with the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, continues to promote the integrity and security of its courses. To further secure its courses, the department will require a proctored final exam for all of its online courses. Students who enroll in online courses will have to take the final exam on campus either on the last day of classes or during the first week of the academic semester, OR with an approved proctor during the course final timeframe. All outside proctors must be approved by the instructor and math department no later than the last day of add drop for the course. Proctors may include, but are not necessarily limited to, an accredited university instructor, an accredited testing center, or an approved proctoring center such as a high school with faculty or librarian as proctor.
