Accommodations for Testing and Learning

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.
