Exam Proctoring Information

The Office of Accessibility Resources (OAR) recommends that students meet with their instructors at least one (1) week before each scheduled exam to determine how exam accommodations will be implemented.

Possible options include:

  • Taking the exam with the class
  • Taking the exam with appropriate accommodations arranged by the instructor. When discussing this option with faculty, please ask them to explore the following:
    • Determine if the classroom is available for an early start or late finish
    • Identify a department office or conference room that can be used for proctoring
    • Determine which individuals in the department can assist with exam proctoring
  • Taking the exam at OAR

OAR provides exam proctoring for students who need assistive computer technology, readers, scribes, specialized accommodations, etc.

Students are required to bring any materials necessary for the exam i.e., calculator, writing utensils, etc.

Personal electronic devices such as phones, smart watches, etc. are not permitted unless allowed by the instructor.

On the day of the exam, students should report to BC119C to check-in with the exam proctor.
