Scheduling of Finals for Spring 2017

The final date for students to download an accommodation letter from the Clockwork online system Thursday, April 13th. To provide faculty and the Accommodated Test Proctoring Service adequate time to process and schedule your final examination, the accommodation will need to be presented to faculty by April 15th. In preparations for accommodated final exams each student should discuss their accommodations and final exam needs with their instructor to see if needs can be met within the departments. So that we can have adequate room for all students needing accommodations, If your instructors can schedule your final exam we ask that they please do so. The DRC’s testing service is to be considered the backup plan when accommodations cannot be met within the departments. 

 

Faculty seeking to schedule an examination through the Accommodated Test Proctoring Service can access the online request here:  Faculty Accommodated Test Proctoring Request Form  More information is available in the Accommodated Test Proctoring Instructor Guidelines. The deadline for the DRC to receive a request for a final exam is Friday APRIL 14, 2017 at 5:00 pm (the Friday 2 full weeks before finals week).
