Exam Accommodations provides students, with documented disabilities, the opportunity to accurately demonstrate how well they have mastered course material by removing disability related obstacles to performance.
Exam accommodations are highly individualized and are determined according to the nature of the student’s disability, as well as course objectives and learning outcomes. Exam accommodations include, but are not limited to, reduced distraction exam environments, extended time, oral exams, scribes, and the use of assistive technology to assist in exam taking.
