Policies and Procedures for SDS Testing

Arranging Testing Accommodations

To make a testing appointment on the Accommodate Student Portal, students must first send their LOAA’s to their professors (this needs to be done every quarter).

Scheduling Quizzes, Tests, and Final Exams

All requests to take quizzes, tests, midterms, and final exams at our Testing Center must be made prior to the sign-up deadlines.

Sign-Up Deadlines

  • If possible, students should request all quizzes, tests, midterms, and final exams at the beginning of each quarter to avoid missing the sign-up deadline.
  • Students must submit quiz, test, and exam requests at least five (5) calendar days in advance for Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, and a least three (3) calendar days in advance for the Summer Quarter.
  • For final exams that are scheduled during the designated final exam period, students must submit requests at least ten (10) calendar days prior to the first day of the final exam period.

Late Sign-Up Process

If you have missed the deadline to sign up for an exam, you will not be able to make a testing appointment on the Accommodate Student Portal.

  1. Please reach out the SDS Testing Center via email with the following information:
    1. Your Name
    2. Course you have an exam in
    3. Date of your exam
    4. Time of your exam (must be the same start time as your class unless you have written approval from your professor saying otherwise)
  2. The SDS Testing Coordinator will make a reasonable effort to review your late test request, but approval cannot be guaranteed.
  3. Upon approval or denial, the SDS Testing Coordinator will send an email confirmation to both the student and the professor.
  4. If a student makes multiple late requests in a quarter, the student may be required to meet with an SDS staff member to review the exam sign-up process.

Make-Up Exam Requests

  • When a student misses an exam due to a non-disability-related situation, SDS will adhere to the professors course policy and procedures when considering the make-up exam request.
  • When a student misses an exam due to a disability-related issue, students with Attendance Modification as an approved accommodation are responsible for communicating with the professor and SDS to arrange the make-up exam.
  • SDS does not administer make-up exams for students without accommodations through SDS.
