Taking Exams at SDS
All requests for testing modifications, such as receiving extra time, using adaptive technologies, or taking the test in the SDS office, must be made three days in advance of the intended test date by using the Testing Modifications Form. This form is required for ALL exams to be proctored in the SDS office. If you are able to make arrangements for testing accommodations with your Instructor, you do not need to complete this form.
In addition, we have a Testing Instructions Sheet, with instructions for students and professors or instructors. Please download both forms for use when planning to test in the SDS office.
Students must inform the professor or instructor of the course where testing accommodations are being requested.
Students must complete the Testing Modifications Form three days prior to the date of the exam to confirm a test date and time with SDS.
Students must arrive for test time promptly. Students should email or call SDS if they will be late or need to reschedule.
PLEASE NOTE: If you need to re-schedule your exam, you will have one (1) opportunity. After that, you must schedule a make-up exam with your instructor, and his or her make-up exam policy will be used. If you do not complete the Testing Modifications Form three days prior to your intended test date, or if you attempt to schedule an exam on the same day, you MAY NOT be able to receive testing accommodations in the SDS Office.
