Accommodations for Exams/Quizzes
In-Person Exams to be Taken in Student Accessibility Services (SAS)
This information is for students connected with SAS who are approved for testing accommodations and who want to use the accommodations for a course exam administered to the class in-person on campus. For Keon Testing Center Exams and Engineering EPC exams, see the respective sections below.
Students must submit their accommodation requests (Course Accessibility Letter request) before booking a test. Students should book their exam with SAS in the Knights Access portal if they wish to receive accommodations for exams that would normally be proctored in class. Students must book or modify a test request at least 5 business days prior to the date of the exam. Students who need accommodations for a Math MALL exam should follow this same process.
If you modify your exam request less than 5 business days before your exam, the request will be considered late and will have to be approved by the testing staff. SAS cannot guarantee we will be able to process late requests. In these cases, exams will need to be taken in the classroom without accommodations.
Students must receive permission from their professor to test at a date or time other than when the class is testing. This includes early start times. For example, if a student has back to back classes and needs to start early to allow for the accommodation of extra time, the student must communicate with the professor and receive permission for a different start time than the class. SAS will verify different start times with the professor prior to the start of the exam.
When submitting a test request, please be sure to select the appropriate accommodation that you will need specifically for that exam/quiz. SAS encourages students to book all tests at the start of each semester.

The testing accommodation process is the same for students taking classes on the Rosen campus. Be sure to submit test requests on time. The Rosen Testing contact will let you know where to report for your test. If you have any questions, email email@example.com.
Online/Webcourse Exams at Home (Whether Course Online or In-Person)
This information is for students connected with SAS who are approved for exam accommodations and who want to use the accommodation for courses in which exams are taken at home using a proctoring service, Zoom or Webcourses. This online test/quiz information applies whether the actual course is online or face-to-face.
Students must confirm the need to use extended time for EACH online exam or quiz with their professor at least two business days prior to the exam. The professor (not SAS) programs the extra time through the online format being used. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate communication with the professor. Be sure that you have requested your accommodations and your Course Accessibility Letters have been sent first. Students should receive confirmation before the exam that the extra time will be added rather than assume the time will be programmed. Students can contact SAS if any concerns about arranging this accommodation.
On the day of the test and if the student has requested more time at least two business days in advance but the additional time was not added by the professor, the student should immediately contact the professor and SAS rather than begin the exam.
If the student did not request extra time two or more business days in advance of the online test, and if the exam is not programmed to include extra time on the day of the test, the student is expected to take the exam under standard time conditions. The accommodation does not apply at that point.
