TESTING STUDENTS WITH ACCOMMODATIONS
The University of North Georgia’s Testing Center is available to provide assistance to students with a physical and/or learning disability based on documentation on file in the Student Disability Services (SDS) Office and with the permission of the instructor.
These testing accommodations generally fall into one or more of the following categories: extended time in a setting less distracting than the actual classroom, a computer for word processing, enlarged print, and in some cases a reader/transcriber.
In order to make arrangements for special testing opportunities, please note the following:
1. Students (Not Instructors) are responsible to submit both required forms (i.e. student sign-up sheet and instructor exam form) to the Testing Center (2nd Floor, Room 203, in the Stewart Centerl) at least five (5) working days before the scheduled date of the exam. Unannounced quizzes shall be the only exception. In this case, instructors should notify the Testing Center with as much advance notice as possible. Student Sign-up Sheets and Instructor Exam Forms are available from the Testing Center and Student Disability Services Office.
2. Students with disabilities desiring to utilize exam accommodations must have documentation of their disabilities on file with the Office of Student Disability Services (SDS).
3. All SDS students utilizing exam accommodations must comply with the University’s Academic Integrity Code.
4. Testing Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00am-5:30pm and all exams, except finals and exams for evening classes, must be completed during these hours. The Testing Center will accommodate the final exam schedule during finals week.
5. Exams may be taken at any time instructors will approve, as long as it is within the hours mentioned in item 4 above.
6. If a test appointment cannot be kept, the student must notify the instructor and Testing Office with as much advance notice as possible.
NOTE: Please be aware that students who are late to scheduled exams are using their allotted exam time. If students are more than 15 minutes late, appointments are forfeited and make-up exams may need to be scheduled. Make-up exams, however, are at instructors’ discretion, not the Testing Office’s. This policy and procedure is applicable to the make-up test as well. As exam accommodations pertain to test time only, students are not allowed to use scheduled test time for studying before beginning examinations.
