How to Submit a Testing Agreement for your Class


While academic departments and faculty members are primarily responsible for providing testing accommodations to students with disabilities, DSP Proctoring may provide support (proctors and space) in the event that the department or faculty do not have the requisite resources to provide these accommodations. Due to space limitations, DSP Proctoring gives preference to students with complex accommodations like 200%+ extended time, room alone, scribe, use of a computer or assistive technology, etc. Students with simple accommodations like a 150% reduced distraction environment will be put on a standby list and scheduled if seating is available. Please make every effort to provide accommodations for students with 150% extended time and reduced distraction within your department. 

Note: Once the Alternative Testing Agreement has been completed, students are responsible for submitting their own Exam Requests through their AIM Student Portal no later than 5 business days prior to the date of their regular-semester exam, and 10 business days prior to their final. We encourage faculty to fill out all Alternative Testing Agreements at the beginning of each semester and include all exams for the entire semester, including your final exam.

A separate Testing Agreement must be submitted through AIM for each course in which you are requesting proctoring services, including a separate request for cross-listed classes. Be sure to distinguish between Lecture sections and Discussion sections. If you submit a testing agreement for a discussion section, only students in that section will be able to schedule their exams.

ALL EXAMS MUST BE TAKEN BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8:30am - 4:30pm, Monday--Friday
