Test Taking Accommodations
Procedure for Students
University of Wisconsin Stevens Point
Instructors may take care of your test
accommodations in their area. However, if they are not able to do so,
they will refer you back to our office to make arrangements for taking
tests. Since we organize test accommodations for about 800 exams each
semester, we have a procedure for taking your tests through Disability
Meet with the Director or Advisor of
Disability Services to have forms completed that specify your test
accommodation needs for each course.
- Meet with each instructor regarding your test accommodations and
get clarification as to whether they will take care of your test
accommodation or you will test through Disability Services. In some
instances, you may need to take the exam through Disability Services
since your test taking needs can only be accommodated through our
office. In these cases, the accommodation request form will be marked accordingly.
- If scheduling your test(s) through Disability Services, stop in
the office at 609 Learning Resource Center and complete the form for
each test. Exam requests are completed online under the Test Accommodations tab. Requests for tests need to be submitted online at least five (5) school
days/week days in advance of the test (please note that it takes five
days to communicate between instructor, proctor, location source and
you, before we finalize testing). We advise all student to bring all syllabi to our office and complete a test requests for all exams during the first few weeks of classes. Please remember to notify us if there are any change in test dates and

day, time, and location. Your professor and proctor will also be

to provide the instructor an assurance that the exam is protected at
all times, and return the exam to the instructor.
