Testing Accommodations

Quiz and/or exam administration is available to students who are registered with the Office of Disability Services and have been approved for testing accommodations.

Test Administration

Test scheduling requests for exams that will take place in the Office of Disability Services (ODS) must be submitted within two-business days of the test using the Test Room Booking tab in Accommodate. Instructions on how to complete this task can be found in the Student Guide for Accommodate. Prior notice is to ensure testing space availability and that we are in receipt of the quiz/test from the instructors. ODS recommends scheduling quizzes/exams at least one week in advance or at the minimum, 3-5 days before the scheduled quiz/exam date. Students MUST communicate with their professors before submitting their test room booking to ensure the date, time, and location of the quiz/exam is finalized before the request is made. In addition, the instructor’s notification and approval is required.

 Note: a Zoom meeting room option is available in the test room booking of Accommodate to support online quizzes/exams.  Students who need a reader or a distraction reduced environment for a Zoom proctored quiz/exam, can submit a test room booking with the selection of a Zoom meeting as the testing room.
