Testing Accommodations Policy


Students may need to request special accomodations for tests/exams. It is the responsibility of the instructor of the course to coordinate with the LSA Testing Accommodation Center (TAC) to arrange testing accommodations for the students who have a VISA letter from the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Office. The TAC requires that the instructor submit requests to hold alternate exams at least two weeks in advance of the exam date. Other options include holding the exam in your office or getting in touch with Student Services regarding reserving a classroom or conference room

In the event there is no room at the TAC, or an emergency arises, exams may be scheduled in the Student Services Office. In this situation, the instructor is responsible for providing a proctor and for scheduling the exam during normal working hours (8:00am-5:00pm). The student services staff can assist with starting and ending the exam provided details of the exam conditions are provided in written form (email if fine). The request should be sent to and include date, time, conditions, and proctor name. 

It is in the best interest of the student to have the exam proctored in a space specifically designed to accommodate their needs.
