Identification of Students

Coastal Alabama Community College does not charge any additional fees for the costs that may be directly incurred with the verification of student identity for students enrolled in distance education courses. However, students enrolled in distance education courses may be required to present a valid photo ID and have access to a computer with Internet access and web cam capabilities. This may result in direct costs to the student not imposed by College.

The final exam, if applicable, must be proctored. Any other exams/assessments may be proctored as determined by the instructor. A proctored assessment is defined as an examination, assignment, or other verbal assessment of work that is taken in the presence of the instructor, an approved proctor, or via video recording. Instructors are responsible for choosing the method of assessment for their distance education students. Instructors, approved proctors, and proctoring software shall require students to show a valid photo ID.
