Initiating requests for testing accommodations is the student's responsibility. In the event that a faculty member is unable to proctor an exam with accommodations, tests may be proctored by the Office of Student Services. Tests should be scheduled at the same time as the rest of the class. Students should negotiate alternative test times with their professors in the following circumstances: the class meets outside regular business hours, provision of an accommodation will cause the test to extend beyond regular business hours, or there is a time conflict between other tests or classes. Regular business hours for the Office of Student Services are Monday-Thursday, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm; Friday 8:00 am to noon. In cases where an exam extends beyond regular business hours and the faculty and student are unable to negotiate an alternate testing time, the Office of Student Services may be able to extend hours. In these cases, notice of two weeks minimum will be required in order to readjust work schedules to meet the need.
Students who have negotiated with their faculty member to take a test with accommodations in the Office of Student Services should notify the Office of Student Services a minimum of two business days prior to the exam. The Office of Student Services will contact the faculty member via email or telephone to make arrangements for procuring the exam as well as instructions for proctoring.
Students who miss exams scheduled with the Office of Student Services will be required to notify their professors. The Office of Student Services will not reschedule exams without the approval of the faculty.
Unless otherwise noted by the professor, students will not be allowed to enter the Office of Student Services testing areas with anything other than a writing implement.
