It is a student’s responsibility to make the necessary arrangements for testing accommodations, by speaking with the professor in advance of the test date. If a reader, writer, or special computer software is needed, please speak with the Testing Center on your campus. Each campus has a Testing Center that is available for all students, but not all Testing Centers have separate rooms for testing in a distraction reduced setting.

How to apply for services

To be eligible for accommodations, a student must satisfy the definition of a disability as established by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Section 504 defines a disability as any person who:

  • has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities
  • has a record of such an impairment
  • is regarded as having such an impairment

  1. First you must self-disclose your disability to Accessibility Resources.
  2. If you would like to request accommodations, please provide your campus Accessibility Resources office with A) an application for services and B) appropriate documentation of your disability from a qualified diagnostician or medical doctor that addresses your disability and its impact in an educational setting. If you have questions about your documentation please contact Accessibility Resources.
  3. After your documentation has been reviewed, and it is determined you qualify for services, an appointment will be made for an interview with a coordinator to discuss the academic accommodations/ support services needed.
  4. It is important to understand that accommodations approved in high school do not necessarily carry over into college.
