Exam Invigilation for Fall 2020

For approved exam accommodations, limited on-campus invigilation may be available for on-campus exams; however, due to the COVID-19 recovery response, we are not able to provide on campus or remote invigilation for online and remote exams. Some exceptions may apply (e.g. remote assistance for students requiring a human reader).

To receive your approved exam accommodations:

  1. Please submit each exam request in the accommodate portal:

Instructions are provided on the home page and in the resource guide. By using our online system:

  • Instructors will receive an email notification of your exam request.
  • You will receive an email notification that your request has been submitted.
  • Accessibility Services will receive a notification. This will allow us to:
    • Record the request and be better able to assist you and/or the instructor with any issues that may arise with implementing exam accommodations
    • Facilitate any on-campus exams, if needed.

2. Contact your instructor directly to arrange exam accommodations

3. Contact Accessibility Services if your exam is on campus to discuss how to arrange exam accommodations.


Midterm Exams and Quizzes:

Submit your request at least seven (7) days prior to the scheduled exam or quiz. Late requests may not be available.

Final Exams:

Submit your request as soon as possible once the Final Exam schedule is released and NO LATER than fourteen (14) days prior to the first day of the Final Exam period – please be aware that this will likely be more than two weeks prior to your scheduled exam. Late requests may not be available.

Please contact an Accommodation Assistant if you need assistance.
