Policy for Accommodated Testing

Disability Services for Students (DSS) provides testing accommodations to eligible students whose disabilities adversely affect them when testing.
Testing accommodations provide access to the test by minimizing or eliminating the functional limitations imposed by the disability.

Students are responsible for following the DSS accommodated testing policy and procedures and taking appropriate steps to correct any problems.

This accommodation may be suspended if a student does not follow the policy and procedures.

Disability Services Responsibilities

  • Identify the specific testing accommodations the student is eligible to use.
  • Provide appropriate assistive technology, test in alternate format or testing space, when not available in the academic department.
