Special Needs Testing
Special Needs Testing Services are available in the Make-Up Testing Center for qualified students who need testing accommodations. These accommodations include, but are not limited to:
- having a test reader
- having a test scribe
- testing in a quiet room
- extended time to take the test
Using the Make-Up Testing Center
Plan ahead. Before you take your first test you, your instructor, and the Special Needs Coordinator will determine your testing accommodations. Bring a copy of your accommodations letter and give it to the Make-Up Testing Center staff.
Know your instructor's testing rules and guidelines for testing outside the classroom. Make-Up Testing staff cannot change special needs testing accommodations nor instructor guidelines for testing.
Schedule your testing appointments as soon as possible. Appointments are made on a first come, first served basis. Testing rooms and accommodations are limited.
Be on time. If you are 10 minutes late, your testing time will be cancelled and made available for another student.
If you need to cancel or reschedule a test, please contact us before your scheduled test time.
If you are a “no show” twice, you will not be allowed to reschedule that test in the Make-Up Testing Center again.
If you need a test reader or scribe, please make arrangements at least two days in advance.
If you are using the Make-Up Testing Center for extended time on your test, you do not need to make an appointment or reserve a testing room.
Read all the Make-Up Testing policies.
If you have any questions about the above guidelines and rules, please schedule a time to talk with a Make-Up Testing Center monitor before your scheduled test time.
