Final Exams

In-person final examinations for Open Learning courses are now available.

Please note that virtual examinations will continue to be offered, whenever possible. We have heard overwhelmingly from students that they wish to maintain the flexibility and convenience of writing exams at home in a virtual setting.

Our intention is to provide the choice of in-person examinations for students for whom it may not be feasible or desirable to take advantage of the online proctoring option. The in-person options will still require students to take the exam at an approved testing centre or location. Students will be responsible for any fees charged by testing centres or locations.

Currently, most Open Learning courses have a virtual final exam that can be taken from home via ProctorU at any time that is convenient. If your course has a “final exam” tab in Moodle, please refer to that for information about how to apply.

Some courses may not have a virtual final exam available, for those courses it will be an in person paper exam that must be taken at an approved testing location or an online alternative alternative final assessment that is taken in moodle.  Students will not be given a choice between the in person paper exam or online alternative assessment, it will be designated by TRU Open Learning. 

Should your course have an alternative final assessment then you will need complete all the required coursework. Then, email by the 12th of the month in the month you plan to write the exam. For example, to apply to write your alternative final assessment in December, send an email with the subject line “December Exams” by December 12th.

 Should you be unclear what options are available for your final exam in your course or if you have any exam questions in general, please email
