Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Students are required to submit prospective local proctors to UNITE Distributed Learning, which will vet the proctor prior to or early weeks of the semester. UNITE will work directly with proctors for exams to ensure that exams are secured, taken per instructor directions and returned to UNITE for submission to faculty for grading on the same day. As most students enrolling through UNITE are fulltime professionals, often company supervisors or education officers may fulfill proctoring responsibilities.
