Testing

Meet with each of your instructors at least two (2) weeks before each examination and make arrangements regarding the exam day, time and location.

Prior to taking your exams at the SAS office (preferably two weeks in advance) :

Complete the Student Section of the Testing Proctor Form and take to each instructor as soon as possible (form is only needed if your professor cannot accommodate you elsewhere, and you will test in SAS). . It is the student’s responsibility to bring the form to the instructor and ask him/her to complete the instructor section.

Return the completed form to the Student Accessibility Services Office, as soon as possible, but preferably two weeks in advance of the test date.

Make sure you are clear about the arrangements for each exam,

Make/request a copy of the Testing Proctor Form for your records.

To make sure your exam is available, contact your instructor at least two (2) days prior to your examination to confirm your test was sent to the SAS office.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Exams will be scheduled and administered ONLY if the Testing Proctor Form is completed, correct and on file with the SAS Office.

On the day of your exam:

Arrive at the SAS office10- 15 minutes before your scheduled examination time. If you arrive late, no additional time will be allowed for the test and you must complete it in the remaining time.
