Testing Accommodation and Requests

If you are eligible for testing modifications such as extended time, a reader, a scribe or a different testing site, you will need to work with a DSS staff member to coordinate these services. It is the student's responsibility to discuss accommodations and make arrangements for the delivery of services with faculty and DSS.

To be guaranteed a testing seat you will need to submit a test request at least one week before all regular exams and at least two weeks before the first university final. Students must remind the faculty of their accommodation needs at least 7 days prior to each exam.

Students wishing to have the exam proctored by DSS must make proper arrangements with each professor for the delivery of each exam to DSS. Please note that students who do not request the exams within the above time frame, will not be able to schedule their exams using the online test booking system.
