It is the student’s responsibility to make an appointment with DSS when planning to take an exam in the DSS office. DSS requires a minimum of:
- 3 working days advance notice before exams or quizzes are to be administered in the DSS office
- 7 working days if exams must be converted to an alternative format (e.g., Braille, large print, etc.)
- 7 working days for readers, scribes and/or assistants
Generally, students with disabilities take exams at the same time as the rest of the class unless there are time conflicts, in which case an alternate exam time is assigned with the instructor’s approval.
DSS administers exams from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Note: Exams will not be administered after 3:15pm unless after hour arrangements have been made 1 week in advance.
