Students with Accommodations

Students needing testing accommodations will first meet with a Student Disability Services (SDS) Coordinator, and file all necessary documentation. Once accommodations have been approved, the SDS Coordinator will send a Letter of Accommodation (LOA) to the Instructor. If your student has approved testing accommodations, you'll proceed to complete an Alternative Testing Agreement through your AIM Instructor Access Portal. The steps are outlined below:

  1. Student meets with an SDS Coordinator and has approved accommodations.
  2. Instructor receives LOA for each student that has accommodations. If they have testing accommodations, proceed to next step.
  3. Instructor completes an Alternative Testing Agreement for each class that has accommodated testers. Only one agreement is required per class. This is found in your AIM Instructor Access Portal. Note: you will also complete a regular TPRF for non-accommodated student exams that need to be proctored in the Testing Center.
  4. Once Testing Services receives the Alternative Testing Agreement through AIM, your accommodated student can proceed to schedule their exam through their Registerblast account.
  5. Student arrives at the Testing Center per their scheduled appointment, made at least two business days in advance.

Note: Students are responsible for selecting their accommodations at the time they schedule their testing appointment. If your students have any questions about scheduling, please direct them to reach out to Testing Services.

If you would like to learn more about accommodations or helping students with disabilities, you may visit the Disability Services page for more information.
