Arranging for Accommodations

It is the student's responsibility to begin making arrangements for accommodations as near to the beginning of the semester as possible. Begin by having your accommodations approved by a specialist or your counselor. Instructors are asked not to agree to an accommodation that has not been approved by DSPS.

If it is difficult for you to take tests/ exams under standard conditions, you may have test proctoring approved. If you will be taking your tests on a computer, you will need to see a specialist in the High Tech Center. After evaluating your computer skills and educational limitations, they may have you complete an authorization form for test proctoring.

If your tests will be on paper, not computer, your test proctoring arrangements will be made with a Learning Specialist in the IAC. After evaluating your educational limitations, they may have you complete an authorization form for test proctoring.

The authorization form will go to your instructor, thus alerting him or her that you will be having your tests proctored in the HTC or IAC.
