NOTE:  Some students are required to pay a $5 identity-verification fee before enrolling in self-paced online courses. This fee does not apply to current, degree-seeking U of A students.   

Students must successfully complete an identity verification process ($5 fee) with ProctorU if they:

  • Have not been admitted as a degree-seeking student through the University of Arkansas Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Graduate Admissions, or International Admissions in the past 10 years.
  • Have not been enrolled at the University of Arkansas in the past 10 years (excludes self-paced online courses).
  • Have not taken ProctorU's identity confirmation exam for the University of Arkansas in the past 5 years.

Do not complete the identity verification process unless you have been notified by Global Campus. Detailed instructions will be provided if action is needed.
