Testing Accommodation Process

Completing and Submitting the Testing Accommodations Authorization Form (Proctor Form)

1. Student completes the yellow Testing Accommodations Authorization Form (Proctor Form) with their DSPS counselor or Learning Disabilities Specialist. This form indicates that the students have registered with DSPS, have a verified disability and are eligible for accommodations.
2. Student brings the Proctor Form to their instructors to complete the reverse side to provide information on exam conditions, delivery and return of exams and how much time the class gets to complete the exam.
3. Student returns the completed form to DSPS or the Learning Disabilities Program. Instructors may choose to submit the forms themselves. A copy of the completed proctor form will be emailed to the instructor.

Scheduling Tests

• Students must make Proctor Room appointments 24 hours in advance of test date/time by completing a Testing Accommodation Appointment Form in the DSPS office next to Admissions.
• Students will clarify with the instructor any changes such as the date/time of each exam/quiz prior to testing date. They will be advised that you, the instructor, may or may not accept an exam/quiz taken at an unauthorized time or date.
