Use of the Test Center:
Some students with disabilities take their tests and exams in the Disability Services Office (DSO) test center in order to make use of their recommended accommodations. Students are also able to make arrangements with their faculty to take tests with accommodations in their classrooms when able and/or desired.
If a student uses the test center, arrangements must be made for delivery of the test to DSO and faculty receipt of the completed test.
