Current Cross-Campus Enrolled Student Exam Information

As of fall 2017, the Davis Division of the Academic Senate (DDR 538) no longer requires that all exams (midterms and finals) given in an online course be proctored: The University Registrar will offer to the instructor of each on-line class the option to have the final in any of the TBA slots.  Additional options for administration of final exams in online courses include the use of testing centers, online proctoring services, and take-home examinations.  Students shall be notified of the time and place of the final on or before the first day of instruction.

If you have any other questions about the program, or are enrolled and would like to make a change to the course (e.g. variable unit, grade mode) or you want to drop the course entirely, you must contact the Cross-Campus Enrollment in Online Courses Program directly at
