For Faculty

Please use the Test Submission Form to provide our proctors with the information they will need to administer your test per your directions. You may also submit your test with this form. Please visit Resources for Faculty and Staff for additional information regarding accommodations and serving our student with disabilities.


Quick Information

  • At the beginning of the semester, show your accommodation memo to your professors in classes where you want to use your accommodations. Be sure they are aware of your specific accommodations and discuss how they will be implemented in that class. 
  • In order to schedule a test with Testing Services, you (the student) are required to complete the following two steps. We request that you complete these steps a week prior to your scheduled test:
      1. Initiate the testing accommodation process for each test by informing the instructor that you intend to use your accommodations and request that the instructor send the test to Testing Services.
      2. To schedule your testing appointment, complete and submit the online Exam Appointment Web Form. 
  • Tests should be taken at the same time/day as when the class is taking the test. Extended time can be added before or after  the class test time to accommodate double time.

Should you need to take the exam at a different time due to a conflict with another scheduled class, you must speak with your professor prior to scheduling the exam with our office. We are generally able to proctor exams between the hours of 8:00 am and 8:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Friday, contingent on staff availability. 

  • Test time starts when you have scheduled to take a test. You will not be given additional time at the end of the scheduled test time should you show up late for your test. For example, if you arrive 30 minutes late, you will not be given an additional 30 minutes after your scheduled end time.

  • An accommodation of extended time on tests means that you will be allotted twice as long as the class is allotted to take an exam. For example, if the class is allotted 50 minutes for an exam, you will be given 100 minutes.
