Body Content

Course instructors shall notify the Institute's Office of Disability Services within the first two weeks of the semester, or in the alternative, within one week of student's intended use of testing accommodations a list of items approved or prohibited during the administration of assessments. This policy will provide students with the opportunity to review, and if necessary re-confirm with the instructor the list of items in advance of the first course assesement or if not applicable to the first assessment, a reasonable time in advance of the assessment that the student intends to utilize testing accommodations.

Final Examination Period

In the event a student who has been granted extended testing time as an accommodation for a documented disability is scheduled for two examinations in one day, the examination scheduled second (later) in time may, at the election by the student , be considered in conflict and treated in all other respects as a conflicted examination under Institute Academic Regulation 12(D)(6) ("Final Examinations").

Please note that the student should contact the professor of the course that needs to be rescheduled before the sign up deadline if the testing center will be utilized for final exam proctoring.
