Special Accommodations Testing

Students are responsible for contacting Student Disability Services (SDS) to receive approved accommodations for their respective exam(s). Once received, the provision of approved special testing arrangements is the responsibility of the Student Disability Services registrant and each of their instructors. Once the disability accommodation form has been received by the instructor, a discussion/agreement of how to best meet the special testing accommodation should take place immediately. Instructors can test in a separate classroom, during office hours, or at a designated, reduced-distraction location provided by each site. Site coordinators and instructors should work out any proctoring requirements and special test instructions.

If the registrant chooses to use either of the main campuses for their special testing needs, the Macon Cove Campus Testing Center and Union Avenue Campus Student Disability Services (SDS) can be responsible for proctoring examinations (midterms, finals, and quizzes) to special needs students in a quiet and distraction reduced environment. Students are responsible for scheduling an appointment at either location by calling 901-333-4170 (Macon Cove Campus Testing Center) or 901-333-5116 (Union Avenue Campus SDS Office). All students are expected to abide by the regular testing rules.

Note: Instructors are required to include the amount of time the examinee gets, as well as what is allowed and not allowed. The information provided by the instructor should be detailed and very specific.

Special accommodations for testing will be available by appointment only. Please consult the table shown below.
