Testing Accommodations

Test taking accommodations ensure that student performance is measured by knowledge and acquisition of course material, and to minimize the impact of the student's disability in the test-taking process. UDSS makes recommendations for test accommodations based on the documented impact of the disability with consideration to students' self report. To determine eligibility and determine details of your accommodation:

  • Make an appointment with your coordinator early in the semester (after obtaining all course syllabi).
  • Obtain Test Accommodation Forms for each course for which you will be taking exams in the UDSS office.  Forms are acquired during your meeting with your coordinator.
  • Have Test Accommodation Forms completed by your instructors and return to the UDSS office no later than five (5) working days before your first exam.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that test dates reported on Test Accommodation Forms are correct.

Eligible students will receive a Test Accommodation form when you meet with your coordinator.  It is the student's responsibility to take the form to their faculty for completion and return the form to the office. 

It is the student's responsibility to communicate test dates and any test date changes to their coordinator.
