The math and accounting courses require that an ID be shown to the video camera for the proctored or recorded tests. To protect your privacy we have chosen the ULM student ID to fulfill this requirement.

• Submit a scanned copy of a government issued Identification Card. (This card MUST have a photo.)

• Upload a color digital image in JPEG format that meets the following specifications:
