Taking tests at the Office of Services for Students with
Disabilities (SSD) is a service provided for students who have
approved testing accommodations such as alternate test site, use of
computer, tests read, or the assistance of a scribe.
Students are required to schedule exams at least one
week in advance in order to use the SSD testing facility.
Failure to provide adequate notice may result in the accommodations
not being available. In cases of pop quizzes, or instructors not
providing the class with one week of notice before an exam,
students will be accommodated based on the availability of the SSD
testing facility and proctors.
In order to schedule exams and quizzes at SSD, students must
complete the Exam Scheduling Form with their
instructor. Drop boxes for completed forms, as well as extra forms
will be located at SSD and at the front entrance of Curtin Memorial
You will receive an e-mail confirming your request to take your
exam at SSD. If for some reason you do not receive a response from
us within two business days, please e-mail or call the office.
Please note that students are required to take
exams at the same time as the rest of the class unless special
arrangements have been made with instructors. In situations where
students have back-to-back classes or evening classes, arrangements
may be made to begin exams earlier than the scheduled class time
and during SSD's regular operating hours.
