Scheduling Exams

  • When scheduling to take an exam through the Disability Center, requests must be submitted at least seven (7) days in advance.
  • Exams must be taken during the regularly scheduled class exam time unless prior approval is given by your instructor. Approvals must be sent to the exams office.
  • You are responsible for resolving any scheduling conflicts such as overlapping exams, exam times overlapping with another class, exams scheduled at times which conflict with accommodations, etc. Scheduling conflicts must be resolved before the seven day deadline as well.

Arriving for Exams

  • You will check in for your scheduled exams at the testing location indicated in the exam reminder email that is sent out the day before. You can use the QR code displayed on the door to check-in. Your proctor will let you know when it’s time to enter the room. We will NOT administer your exam if you are more than five minutes late.
  • You must present the exam proctor with a valid ID upon arrival. If an ID is not provided, the exam will NOT be administered, and you will be directed to take your exam in class.
  • If your exam is online and/or you will need a laptop, you will be required to bring your own device. This includes other devices such as headphones/earbuds for listening portions. If there are issues with this, they need to be addressed ahead of time with the exams office.
  • Personal belongings must be left either in the front of the exam room with the proctor or outside of the room. This includes backpacks, electronics, hats, sunglasses, and any additional materials not allowed during the exam. Valuables should be left at home.

Academic Dishonesty

The Disability Center takes the role of proctoring exams seriously — striving to ensure academic integrity and to protect students from any question of impropriety. Any concerns regarding academic dishonesty will be addressed with the student and reported to the course instructor for further action. If found guilty of academic dishonesty while using the Disability Center facilities or rooms occupied by the Disability Center for exams, case-specific sanctions will be implemented, including the possibility of losing the privilege of having exams administered by the Disability Center.
