Student Identity Verification Measures

  • All online classes are password protected. Students must provide name, date of birth, and the last four digits of their social security number, to receive an email and password from the University of South Dakota. Access to online courses is managed through USD systems only and not a student's personal email.
  • Assessment of student learning in online classes often assists in student identity verification. Many tests are proctored in person by University employees at the University's statewide higher education centers in Pierre, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls, SD, and in Vermillion, SD, at the Division of Continuing and Distance Education. Students in other states make application for a professional proctor in their region who is approved by the University of South Dakota in advance of testing. The Proctor Application can be found here: Proctor Form. University staff evaluates carefully the proposed proctors assessing potential conflicts of interest. Approved proctors verify student identity prior to each test.
  • Finally, a growing number of online courses supplement instruction with web conferencing. This technology allows the professor to further authenticate identity through voice recognition and visual recognition if webcams are used.
