Disability Services Faculty & Staff Testing Accommodations

Alternate testing locations which provide minimal distractions should be arranged and agreed upon by the student and the professor prior to the first exam. If an appropriate room is unavailable in the academic department, a testing room can be reserved by the professor through Disability Services. The student should confirm with the professor that the room has been reserved and that the test has been provided to Disability Services prior to test time. Tests and a completed Testing Accommodations Delivery Sheet should be provided to Disability Services with necessary proctoring instructions. You may drop off your exam in Disability Services at any time.  For your convenience and security we have a locked mail slot outside of our office.  If you wish to fax or e-mail your exam, please call 468-3004.

When you receive your Special Accommodation Request form you will also receive a Testing Accommodations Semester Reservation form.  This form will allow you to reserve facilities for proctoring exams for the entire semester.  As you meet with a client, complete this form together.  The student’s information and your course information have been preprinted on the form.  You will only need to add the exam dates, times they should be administered and special equipment needed.  You may either mail or hand deliver the form to our office.  Exam dates may be updated as needed throughout the semester.

Alternate formats for testing should be made available as indicated on the accommodation request form or as otherwise arranged with the student.  Assistance in preparation of alternate formats is available in both the Steen Library and Disability Services.

Students needing reader/scribe assistance should make the request by contacting Disability Services or completing the Service Provider Request at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled exam.
