Policy & Guidelines


Students MUST present a legible University picture ID to gain entrance to an exam for which they have registered in advance with Joe Blanchard at 368-4107.

In very few emergency cases, a one-time use of a valid driver's license or military ID may be used (at the discretion of the manager on duty). In this case, the student must submit his or her eight-digit University Identification Number (UIN). If the student does not have either of these items, he or she will not be authorized to gain entrance to the exam. See University ID Card webpage for information on obtaining and using your ODU Identification Card.

Except for religious or medical reasons, wearing hats and other headgear is not allowed in the testing room.
