Exam Accommodations

Exam accommodations are changes in when, where, or how you complete an exam. These accommodations also apply to quizzes, tests, and mid-terms.

Some examples of exam accommodations are:

  • Writing in a room where visual and auditory distractions are reduced
  • Using technology such as read aloud or dictation software

You can talk to your Accessibility Specialist about what exam accommodations might work for you and your courses.
