Exams

For any exam accommodation administered by Disability Services, students must make arrangements at least 10 business days (two weeks) prior to test date. This includes scheduling it with Disability Services and completing, signing, and returning the proctoring form. This form will also need to be completed and signed by the professor before it is turned in to Disability Services. Also, see Exam Accommodations Procedures (PDF).

Alternative and Electronic Format and Font
The font size on your tests may be enlarged to meet your needs.

Distraction Reduced Environment
The exam setting should have minimal auditory and visual stimuli and minimal interruptions. A small group setting is generally sufficient.

Extended Time
You may be allowed additional time for your exams, either in your classroom, or in another location provided by your professor. The amount of time allowed is determined by Disability Services and is based on the student interview and submitted documentation.

Reader/Scribe
Disability Services provides a reader/scribe when appropriate and by prior arrangement. Clarification or explanation of questions is not permitted.

Separate Room
Your exam may be taken in a different room chosen by your professor or in the Disability Services Office. Prior arrangements must be made.

Use of Calculator
You may be allowed to use a calculator during a test if it does not compromise the essential requirements of the class. (Essential course requirements are determined by the appropriate department.)

Use of Computer
You may be allowed to use a computer for essay exams and/or note-taking. This may be done within the classroom testing setting or at the Disability Services office.
