For Arranging Testing Accomodations

(Procedures may vary by necessity.)
  • Register with the Disability Resources Office.
  • Send out your Letters of Accommodation (LOA's), and meet with your professors, each semester.
          • Students login to student health portal -> select Accommodations -> select Terms Requests 
          • Select Term -> select Request Accommodations – select approved accommodations per class schedule and submit 
          • Select Accommodations -> select Terms Requests – select Term -> download accommodation letter for each class 

            Once your accommodations are approved you will find your Letter of Accommodation by following the below instructions.  

    • Read your LOA to make sure it describes the accommodations and other access solutions that should appropriately address any barriers to educational access that may be present in your current courses.
    • Send your LOA to all professors whose courses may present barriers to educational access for you, to document and communicate these concerns. (Alternative delivery methods may be available upon request.)
    • Arrange to meet with your professors individually to discuss how the access solutions described in your LOA will be provided for in their class. (For example: Professor Alexander may be able to provide a minimally distracting test setting in the department, while Dr. Watson may require the Disability Resource Office to administer the test.)
  • Schedule with the Disability Resources Office at least one week in advance of any test you wish to take with us.
    •  Scheduling exam times with the Disability Resources Office can be done by following this link
    • The professor is responsible for getting the exam to the Disability Resources Office in a format that is accessible for the student, or far enough in advance to allow the office to convert it, if necessary.
    • The Disability Resources Office is responsible for administering the test, ensuring appropriate accommodation, and returning the exam to the professor.
  • Tests will generally be administered at the same time your class is taking the test.
    • Times may need to be changed to accommodate extended time where course schedules conflict.
  • No cellular phones, PDA’s, or electronic media devices are allowed in the testing environment.
    • Should any electronics be required to fulfill a student’s accommodative needs, they will be provided or inspected by the proctor prior to test administration.
  • Tests are administered in one session.
    • However, this policy may be altered by the Disability Resources Office, as necessary and appropriate, to ensure accommodation.
  • Students may not leave the testing environment unannounced and without permission.
    • Restroom visits may be provided, upon request, but all testing sessions are considered to be closed.
