EXPAND YOUR EDUCATION!
Earn a Bachelor of Business Administration at your convenience
Through a partnership with Georgia Southwestern State University, Students can earn their Bachelor of Business Administration without ever having to leave their designated location.
The foundation of the partnership between the following schools and Georgia Southwestern is the mix of traditional classroom lectures and online course format. Upon earning an Associates Degree in Business, students can transfer to Georgia Southwestern and earn a Bachelor of Business Administration through the convenience of online courses. This combination results in a degree program that easily accommodates the busiest of students with demanding schedules.
Beginning with the Spring 2013 semester the School of Business will begin phasing in proctored examinations in its online courses. We are doing this for a variety of reasons, including increased pressure from the Federal Department of Education to verify identities of online students, and to increase opportunities for academic integrity.
We looked at several alternative ways of instituting this change and decided to use an online proctoring service. While this will represent a cost for you, our research indicated that it would be preferable to limiting the times you could take the exam to times when official testing sites are open, as well as being less expensive than most of the testing sites.
Each online course will require one proctored exam. The minimum cost for a 2-hour exam is $25. Reservations made within 72 hours of your exam are subject to a $5 late reservation fee. Students without an appointment can take their exam on demand within 15, 30 or 45 minutes utilizing “Take it Now”. This premiere feature is designed to give test takers added convenience and only costs $8.75. Late registrations and “Take it Now” are subject to availability. Students should be aware that they are responsible for ProctorU testing fees. We anticipate that a student taking a normal class load will pay approximately $100 in testing fees this semester. ProctorU will administer the proctored exam.
