Student Test Accommodations

The DATC administers around 1,000 exams/tests per semester for students who qualify for exam accommodations through the DATC.

The DATC proctors exams in multiple locations:

  • a few individual testing rooms with camera monitoring
  • testing rooms with computers; for students who qualify for assistive technology testing accommodations
  • small testing rooms for 1-2 test takers
  • in a group setting, that is smaller and has fewer distractions than the classroom
  • or you may make personal arrangements with your instructor

Proctored Exam Procedure for Students

Instructors may arrange test accommodations for students with disabilities in their area. However, if instructors are unable to do so, they may refer the student to the DATC, and we will arrange for a proctored exam.

  1. Students will submit an accommodation notice to their instructors via DATC Connect.
  2. Students are encouraged to meet with each of their instructors regarding their exam accommodations and together determine if the student will test through the DATC or make arrangements with the instructor.
    • In some instances, a student’s exam accommodation needs can only be met through our office. In these cases, the instructor may be notified by the DATC.
  3. If the student and/or instructor chooses to schedule their exams(s) through the DATC the student will then submit a test request through DATC Connect. Should the instructor change the test date, we expect students to inform the DATC as soon as possible, so we are able to make proctored exam changes in our office.
  4. The student and instructor will then receive an email with confirmation of their exam day, time, and location.
    • Requests for exams/quizzes need to be submitted online at least five (5) business days (Monday-Friday) no later than 4:30 p.m. in advance of the exam and about one (1) month prior to your finals. Please note that before we finalize exam accommodations, it takes time to communicate between instructor, proctor, location source, and student.
    • Please remember to notify us if there are any change in exam dates and time.
