Our office helps faculty and students arrange for exam accommodations such as extended testing time, distraction-reduced exam room, or scribes to record answers. Instructors should try to arrange this in their offices if at all possible. If an instructor is unable to do so, exams may be administered in our office.

The student will bring you an Exam Administration Form, which outlines procedures and asks for faculty to specify information to us such as whether there is flexibility about which day the test is given and whether the student is permitted any other materials (e.g., scratch paper, calculator, notes).

The following procedures must be followed in order for SSD to administer exam:
No later than 48 hours prior to the date of the test

  1. Faculty should hand deliver or email a copy of the test and Exam Administration Form to AD 7 or mcicirelli@jcu.edu
  2. Students should schedule a time with SSD. We must be notified in advance so that we can have a proctor and room available.

After the test is completed, the instructor will be notified that it is ready to be picked up or alternatively the exam can be returned to your office/department by a member of our staff.

*Any person who picks up the test will be asked to sign and date a form stating that they have retrieved the exam.
