You must be connected with the Office of Accessibility Resources and Service to issue Accommodation Notifications and to schedule timed assessments (quizzes, tests & exams) to be taken at the ARS testing center. Note - you do not have to take your tests/exams at ARS. Your instructor may be able to accommodate students with accommodations for testing locally, and we encourage you to explore this option.
Learn how to issue notifications and schedule tests and exams with this ARS Hub Orientation.
- Visit the ARS Hub and make sure Instructor Notifications have been issued and you have communicated with each Instructor BEFORE scheduling your exams.
- Exams should be scheduled at the same time the rest of the class is testing, unless consent has been obtained from the class instructor. This written permission must be sent to ARS before testing can be done. Please note that deliberately 'mis-scheduling' a test is a violation of The Honor Code, and can be reported as academic misconduct.
- ARS takes its exam proctoring responsibilities seriously and has stringent measures in place to ensure that academic integrity and The Honor Code are upheld. Any student suspected of breaking the Honor Code will be reported to the Office for Student Conduct without exception.
- The ARS Testing Center is open to accommodate testing with accommodations between 8 AM and 8 PM Monday to Thursday, and 8 AM to 5 PM on Friday. For times that the university is closed for holidays, observances, and inclement weather, the testing center will also be closed.
- Exams to be taken at the ARS Testing Center must be scheduled 5 business days/7 calendar days in advance. If you miss this deadline, you will need to fill out the Non-Standard Scheduling Request form. Business days do not include the day you are scheduling or weekends.
