Final Exams for Students with Disabilities

The following information is provided for faculty and staff who are working with students with disabilities approved for exam accommodations by the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD).

  • Faculty and staff are encouraged to speak with students enrolled in their courses regarding accommodations for final exams as soon as possible.  Students with disabilities are not required to take exams at the CSD.
  • Whenever possible, students should take their exams with the class or within the department with the approved accommodations.
  • In the event that the faculty or staff member cannot administer the exam in class or within the department with the approved accommodations, the CSD may be available to administer and proctor exams.  Please note that due to the high volume of exams, faculty and staff are encouraged to work with their students as early as possible in order to reserve an exam space at the CSD during final exam week.
  • In order to assure appropriate accommodations are provided, students must make requests for a final exam to be administrated through the online system at least one week (5 business) days in advance of the exam date. The online system can be access from the CSD’s website or directly at
  • CSD anticipates that we will reach capacity and may not be able to assist with all requests.
