ΘνΓΓΙη students must register with the Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources and get its approval for reasonable exam accommodations prior to requesting accommodated exam services at the ΘνΓΓΙη testing centers.
The testing centers are available to course instructors and students who need to coordinate equal access exam accommodations, including quiet testing space, computer use for essay exams, and a reader or writer upon request.
Services are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the north (main) campus, and 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the south (medical) campus.
Two kinds of exams may take place in the testing center:
- Out-of-class exams for students with approved accommodations through the Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources
- Rescheduled exam requests for students who do not have accommodations but who are unable to take an exam in class at the regularly scheduled time
It is recommended that students and instructors review the Testing Center Policies and Procedures (PDF) prior to utilizing the testing centers.
Scheduling an Exam with Exam Accommodations
Students with exam accommodations will begin the process of completing the Out of Class Testing (OCT) Form via DocuSign. Students will then submit the form, which will automatically go to their instructor to complete. Once submitted by the instructor, it will automatically go to the selected testing center.
If a student or instructor needs assistance with this process, the following videos and help guide outline the process on how to complete the OCT form and scheduling an exam with accommodations.
Scheduling a Missed or Make-Up Exam
Instructors can utilize the testing centers to facilitate rescheduled exams for students who do not have accommodations. These are for circumstances when the student was unable to take an exam in class at the regularly scheduled time. Rescheduled exams during midterms and finals will only be accepted for reasons related to unexpected or emergency circumstances. These will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
To submit a Rescheduled Exam Request (RER) Form, the instructor and the student should agree to a date and time for the rescheduled exam. The instructor will complete and submit the RER Form at least 72 hours (business days) in advance to the requested date.
If an instructor needs assistance with this process, the following video and help guide outline the process on how to complete the RER form and scheduling a missed or make-up exam.
Testing Center Frequently Asked Questions
You must submit an Out of Class Testing (OCT) Form, via DocuSign, to your instructor. Once they have submitted the form, it will then be sent to the selected testing center automatically. These forms must be submitted at least one week in advance to your exam date. If a form is sent fewer than seven days in advance, the Testing Center cannot ensure that you will receive your full accommodations due to spacing and/or staffing.
Once the completed form is entered into the testing center schedule, you will receive a confirmation email. Ensure that your confirmation email is correct. If there is a mistake, please contact the testing center immediately.
