directions for accessing exam accommodations
Disability Support Services (DSS) offers exam accommodations for students with disabilities such as extended time, alternative formats, and assistive technology depending on the student’s disability. These accommodations are implemented to give students with disabilities equal access to testing and accommodates for certain limitations related to the student’s disability.
Testing outside the classroom or academic department is warranted only if circumstances prevent the instructor from making localized arrangements or if student needs assistive technology at DSS. Therefore, when testing accommodations or alternative testing is needed, students are responsible for discussing this issue with the professor to make the appropriate arrangements to have the exam administered. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule exams with DSS at least one week prior to the exam date. Failure to schedule an exam one week in advance may lead to DSS denying the requested time and date for the exam. DSS will make every effort to accommodate students in a timely and reasonable manner.
Standard testing procedures for DSS:
Students who arrive at DSS late for an exam may have this time deducted from their scheduled testing time, as in the case of classroom testing. If a student does not come in to take a scheduled exam at DSS, the examination will be sent back to the professor. Therefore, students must have the professor approve any change in time of administration of exams before DSS will make an appointment to reschedule proctoring the exam again.
Thank you for your assistance in this testing process!
