How to Request Academic Accommodations
- OAR-registered students with approved academic accommodations must notify faculty of approved accommodations each semester by completing the Academic Accommodations Notification Online Form.

- If new academic accommodations are being requested, a meeting with Accessibility Resources is required. To schedule a meeting please call 508-565-1014 during weekday business hours.
- Approved academic accommodations, including exam accommodations, will be outlined in the student's Letter of Accommodation.
- In classes where accommodations are needed, students should share their Letter of Accommodation with their instructors as early in the semester as possible.
- Students are required to communicate with their faculty about how approved accommodations will be implemented.

How to Request Accommodations for Exams
Course instructors are expected to provide standard exam accommodations such as extended time or a distraction-reduced location. In the event that the course instructor is unable to provide accommodations for a scheduled exam, the student must request exam accommodations from the Office of Accessibility Resources at least three business days in advance of the exam. The Office of Accessibility Resources cannot guarantee that exam proctoring will be available if the Exam Accommodation Request Form is not submitted 3 business days in advance of the schedule exam.
- If the time or date of a proctored exam changes, it is the student's responsibility to notify the OAR at least 24 hours in advance.
- If the student will miss a proctored exam due to illness or other reasons, s/he must contact the course instructor directly and contact the Office of Accessibility Resources to cancel the proctored exam and make arrangements to reschedule.
- If the student is late for a proctored exam, the time missed will be deducted from the exam time allocated. If the student is more than 30 minutes late, the exam will be returned to the instructor.
- Books, backpacks, purses, notebooks, cell phones and other personal belongings will remain with the OAR exam proctor and the student will not be allowed to access them at any point during the proctored exam. An exception will be made if the proctored exam is pre-designated as “Open Book” or “Open Notes” by the course instructor.
- Prior to the proctored exam, the student will be assigned to a specific proctoring desk/study carrel and will not be allowed to change seats.
- Students should use the restroom prior to starting the proctored exam. Students will not be allowed to leave the testing center once the exam begins.
