In light of Campus closure and as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19, employees in the Disability Resource Center are working remotely in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. Staff are working diligently to respond to inquiries as quickly as possible. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to our COVID-19 information page as the situation develops.

Testing Accommodations

Students with disabilities may be eligible for testing accommodations. Testing accommodations are changes to the regular testing environment and auxiliary aids and services that allow individuals with disabilities to demonstrate their true aptitude or achievement level on standardized exams or other high-stakes tests. If you are interested in testing accommodations please discuss options during your initial meeting with a DRC Staff member.

Important Testing Policies

1. Schedule Exam in DRC Online at least 3 business days before the exam. 

Testing time must be on the same day and time as the class is taking the test. Any change must be approved in advance by DRC and/or your instructor.

Schedule by:

                Monday for a Thursday exam

                Tuesday for a Friday exam

                Wednesday for a Monday exam

                Thursday for a Tuesday exam

                Friday for a Wednesday exam

*FINALS WEEK: During Fall and Spring semesters only, DRC monitors final exams in two sessions: 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Students must take final exams during the session/day that overlaps with the majority of the in-class final. Only extenuating circumstances are considered for alternative testing sessions. DRC and instructor approval is required and must be established in advance.

2. Be on time! Your late arrival to an exam can impact your extended time. The room you are scheduled for may be scheduled for another student after your scheduled testing time. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your test you may not be allowed to test at the scheduled time. If you need to reschedule please let us know as soon as possible.
