  • Test and exam scheduling
  • Testing materials
  • Managing ARS resources
  • Communication between instructors and students

Deadlines:

  • ALL EXAMS WILL BE CONSIDERED CONFIRMED AS ENTERED/SCHEDULED ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26 at 5 PM.

  • All regular semester exams: need to be scheduled at the beginning of the semester, but no later than 5-business days (7-calendar days) ahead of the testing date

  • Final exams: need to be scheduled at the beginning of the semester, but no later than Tuesday, November 26

Students:

  • Timely Scheduling: The portal will allow scheduling for an exam 5-business days (7-calendar days) ahead of the proposed exam. Please schedule all exams at the beginning of the semester to avoid not being able to find a seat at ARS on your testing day.

  • Timing: exams are expected to last the normal duration of the regular class time unless otherwise specified by course instructions. Students should consult their course syllabi or instructor for information regarding the length of exams. IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO CONFIRM ALL DETAILS FOR SCHEDULING THEIR EXAMS.

Request forms: 

Instructors:

  • Accommodations: Instructors are reminded that agreed accommodations are legally mandated.

  • Common accommodations: The most common testing accommodations are +50% extended testing time in a “low distraction setting.” Please allow for early/different start times for students who may have other courses that surround yours, and work with the student to find an approved alternate start time.

  • Failure to make the appropriate arrangements and adhere to ARS scheduling policies and procedures may result in a student not being able to utilize their accommodations during testing. If you have any questions during exam scheduling, we encourage you to email our office at ars@unc.edu for clarification. We will be happy to help you navigate this process to the best of our ability and as time allows.
