The Disability Services Office (DSO) offers test-proctoring services only for students who are approved for testing accommodations. In order to use the DSO test proctoring services, the student must complete and submit a Test Proctoring Form. Please note: The DSO will schedule exams to begin and finish/end during the 8am-5pm workday only. No exams will be scheduled on weekends or after normal business hours.
The test proctoring form is easy to complete – it has 3 sections:
1st Section: Student completes
2nd Section: Professor completes AND signs
3rd Section: DSO personnel/test proctor completes AFTER the exam
You will need a test proctoring form for each test you want to take through the Disability Services Office (DSO).
The DSO must receive the completed (first two sections) test-proctoring form no later than 5 business days before the test – it can be submitted more than 5 days prior to the test. The professor MUST sign the form before the DSO will process the test-proctoring request; otherwise, the student will be contacted regarding the incomplete form. Incomplete forms will not be processed. If we receive a test proctoring form with less than 5 business days before the exam is to be scheduled, we will not be able to honor the request and the student will need to make other arrangements to take that particular test.
Once we receive the test-proctoring form, a process begins where we select a test proctor and location. All information regarding the test proctoring is sent via email – these emails will contain the specifics for your test once all the details are established and the time, proctor, and location are determined.
You may also receive an email if the proposed time for your test needs to be modified – this would be prior to finalizing the day, time, and location.
