Examination accommodations are provided to eligible students with disabilities. These accommodations will be noted on the student’s letter of accommodation. Students who are eligible for exam accommodations must follow these procedures in order to utilize the testing facility:

Eligible students will:

Complete and submit an exam schedule card to the Center for Disability Resources (CDR) within one week of receiving the accommodation letter. This exam schedule card is used to schedule students to complete exams in the testing facility and to request exams from faculty.

  • List only the classes and exams that will be completed in the CDR testing facility. 
  • Schedule exams to be completed between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.  
  • Notify the CDR of any changes to the scheduled exams by emailing shutter@lvc.edu.
