To make these arrangements you will need to either email your consultant directly or send your request to email@example.com. Consultant email addresses can be found at this link or on your letter of accommodation. Once the request is received, your consultant will contact you via email to arrange ameeting.
If you have testing accommodations, please contact your instructor to see how they plan to proceed with testing. If, after this conversation, you have concerns regarding accommodations, contact your DRC Consultant.
Until further notice, the Accommodated Testing Center will only be providing online test proctoring and there will be no on site proctored testing.
