Most online courses have an in-person/proctored final exam, although some will use a web-based exam or a take-home paper. The Trent Online Office will work with all students required to write in-person/proctored to ensure that they have access to their exams.
Students residing more than 200 km from Peterborough or Oshawa (remote), will NOT be required to travel to Peterborough or Oshawa.
Students enrolled in a WEB course with a proctored final exam will see a link for a "Final Exam Declaration' form at the top of each page of the course in Blackboard beginning mid-week of the first week of the course and continuing for approximately 2 weeks. The information in this form allows Trent Online to begin to schedule final exam arrangements for each student. Please be sure to watch for this declaration and to complete it promptly.
