We are excited to welcome University of Arkansas students who need to complete select pre-requisites for the University of Arkansas’ Master of Science in Operations Management program. UofA_Academic LogoThe University’s Department of Industrial Engineering offers a Master of Science in Operations Management which was established in 1974 to fulfill recognized needs in graduate education for military, civilian, and industrial personnel. Since that time it has become the largest graduate degree program offered by the University of Arkansas.

Because the Operations Managment program accepts students from all undergraduate majors, it is important that all entering students have a solid foundation in a common core of relevant subjects. The Department therefore requires students to satisfy certain undergraduate course prerequisites before they have completed more than 12 hours of graduate level course work toward their Operations Management degree. We are pleased to be able to work with the Department to offer three key prerequisites, tuition free.

For each of these courses, students must pass a proctored exam. Proctoring requirements are explained below.

To earn recommendation for college credit, your exam must be proctored (that is, your attempt must be monitored). Our approved proctoring service is a company called ProctorU. You will be able to take the exam in a secure, quiet place with a dependable network connection; people most often take the exam at home. Each attempt will cost $25 USD (this fee is assessed by ProctorU).

Complete steps for scheduling and taking an exam with ProctorU are available in our Help Center. The video Online Proctoring: How it works from ProctorU will also help you better understand how the proctoring process.

Requesting Transcripts

For this program, Saylor Academy will fulfill transcript requests once the proctored exam is successfully completed. Complete the transcript request form (paying attention to the notes, where applicable) and we will take care of the rest!
