Student Verification Statement
Federal law requires that universities verify the identity of students when course materials and/or course assessment activities are conducted either partially or entirely online . A student’s Desire2Learn (D2L) login and password are intended to provide the student with secure access to course materials and are also intended to help the university meet this federal mandate. Some SDSMT Faculty also require the use of a proctor for exams in distance-delivered (Internet) courses and this requirement provides a second level of student identify verification. Finally, an instructor who uses web conferencing technology may require students to use a webcam during exams, as another means of student identify verification through voice and visual recognition.
