STUDENT IDENTITY VERIFICATION POLICY
This policy applies to all credit-bearing distance education and/or non-residential courses or programs offered by United Medical Institute, beginning with the application for admission and continuing through a student’s graduation, transfer, or withdrawal from study.
UMI applies the following methods of student identity verification:
A secure login and pass code;
Proctored examinations; and
Other technologies and practices that are effective in verifying student identification.
Application and Admission:
All UMI applicants must attend a one-on-one video conference with an Admissions Advisor before applying to a UMI program. All applicants must then provide a government-issued picture identification during the program application process to confirm their identity.
Prospective students are responsible for providing their complete and true identity information in any identification verification process. It is against UMI’s policy for an individual to attend the initial video conference and/or submit an application on someone else’s behalf.
New Student Orientation is conducted via remote synchronous video conference (Zoom or Google Meet). All newly admitted students are required to participate in the orientation with their video cameras on. Prior to the orientation, new students receive UMI-issued Student Email account. During the orientation, newly admitted students are granted access to selected Google Program and Class Portals for their first term.
New and Continuing Students:
Every term, students receive access to UMI’s Google Classroom portals. Access is granted to the students by invitation only using their UMI Student Email accounts.
According to the UMI’s remote live classroom policy, all students must attend remote synchronous class sessions with their video cameras on. All tests and final exams are proctored live by a faculty member or a designee. Students take their tests and exams during remote synchronous live class sessions. Students are required to keep their video cameras on while taking the exams.
Access to Clinical Portal -TracPrac
Students must use their school-issued Student ID number to sign up and create their TracPrac accounts. Students’ clinical hours and activities are recorded with a GPS-tracking TracPrac feature. It is a violation of UMI’s Student Integrity policy to share your TracPrac ID and login with another individual.
It is a violation of UMI’s Academic Integrity Policy and UMI’s Student Conduct Policy to misrepresent your student identity or participate in such misrepresentation by other students.
As of June 2023, all active students and all new students will be issued a UMI student email. Students are required to use their UMI student email to subscribe and sign-in to all UMI classroom portals.
