Student Disability Services: Exam week info you should know

Student Disability Services (SDS) wants to make sure you are aware of some important details if your students will be using the Test Proctoring Center (TPC) during final exam week (April 27 – May 1):

·         The TPC is limited on the number of exams that can be proctored during the week of finals. We cannot reserve space or take tentative test proctoring requests.  SPACE WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE FOR SDS REGISTERED STUDENTS.  Upon receipt of a completed online test proctoring form (submitted by the student and verified by the instructor), we will confirm whether or not we can accommodate the request.  We operate on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVE BASIS, so please respond to and confirm your students’ requests ASAP.

·         The deadline for submitting a completed online test proctoring form (including the student’s request AND instructor’s verification) to SDS for final exam week is noon Monday, April 20.  Once the scheduling window is closed, it will NOT be reopened.

·         When one of your students submits the online form here, you will receive an email asking you to verify the exam information. You must complete the verification before the deadline. (Note: Please do not close the page unless you have seen the confirmation page indicating that the form has been successfully submitted.)

·         If you do not receive a confirmation email from, then the exam has not been scheduled.  Please check your junk email folders for this confirmation email.

·         Access and manage student requests here. You can also check the status of student requests at this site.

·         TPC hours during final exam week: 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. (exam must be finished by 7 p.m.). Our online system will not process requests in which the end time of the exam is after 6:30 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 4:30 p.m. on Friday. To work around this, please select a time allotted that will fall within the allowed parameters. Please indicate the correct start time and time allowed in the special instructions section of the form. (We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to get this fixed.)

·         Due to the high volume of exams, we will not be able to guarantee our usual one business day turnaround on completed exams. The quickest way to receive completed exams is to select the “instructor pick up” option on the proctoring form.
