Accommodated Testing

UT Tyler Student Accessibility and Resources

Students who have registered with the Office of Student Accessibility and Resources and deemed eligible for accommodated testing may take their exams in the Testing Center. Testing accommodations may include extended time, a quieter separate location, enlarged font, use of a scribe, use of adaptive equipment and others.

Procedures for accommodated testing in the Testing Center:

  • Students are required to schedule their exams using their SAR Online Services student profile.
  • Exams will be administered as close to the class test date/time as possible with some flexibility due to scheduling or accommodation requirements.
  • Students are expected to arrive at the designated testing time.
  • Professors will send exams to the SAR office at least three days prior to the exam date so that format adjustments, scribes or other adaptive equipment can be provided to stay in compliance with ADA supported accommodations.
  • If exams are not received in time to efficiently provide the accommodation, the SAR office will schedule the exam as needed to remain in compliance.
  • Professors may need to provide an electronic copy of the exam in a .doc format so that necessary adjustments may be made to meet accommodation requirements.
