Testing Accommodations

Student Accessibility Services supports students studying at our North Bay campus, as well as students studying at a distance. Various testing accommodations including additional time, distraction-reduced writing space, assistive technology, etc. are available to all students registered with our office provided that their documentation supports the accommodation. Students will learn about their eligibility for testing accommodations once they meet with their Accessibility Consultant who will review their documentation and determine the appropriate supports.

If you require testing accommodations for the courses your are registered in, please see the table provided below. It identifies the deadlines to request accommodations for your quizzes, tests, midterms, and final exams for various types of courses.
