However, a section of the teaching staff has voiced concern over the idea of online exams, contending that the method is "discriminatory and flawed".
The AMU's decision follows the Delhi University's move to hold open book exams.
Following the decision, a section of teachers have written a letter to the Vice Chancellor.
In the letter, teachers' elected representative to the university's executive committee, Prof Aftab Alam, said the decision to hold online exams violates the statutes of the institution and any decision to hold online exams has to be preceded by certain mandated procedures.
The letter points out that all students may not have proper access to Internet facilities in the present scenario.
Meanwhile, all university offices, which reopened on Monday, reported full attendance.
Employees, who are senior citizens or those who reside in coronavirus containment areas, have been exempted from attending office.
