Most students who are eligible through Student Access and Accommodation Services (SAAS) and use exam accommodations choose to take the exams at the SAAS offices. However, if you and the student agree that taking the exam in your class is a better option because of the type of exam, then the student can do so. Please note: You, as the professor, have a legal responsibility to ensure that the student receives the same accommodations that would be provided at SAAS. Please call SAAS to discuss this option so that the student receives the accommodation they are entitled to under the law.
If a student with a disability and/or medical/mental health condition has approved exam accommodations, they are expected to:
PLEASE NOTE: If the student says that SAAS has refused to accommodate the exam request, please call SAAS to verify the validity of that statement and to discuss options if needed.
Your responsibility is to provide an exam copy to SAAS. Students who are approved for exam accommodations are also approved to take exams at SAAS. The student will tell you if they plan to take an exam at SAAS. We will follow up with an Exam Delivery Request email to you two business days before the exam. Then email, fax, or deliver the exam copy to SAAS, and we will provide the appropriate accommodations.
There are three options for delivering exams to SAAS. These options ensure the confidentiality, the integrity, and the timely delivery of each exam:
Exams are received by professional staff and stored in a secure location. Please do not send exams via Campus Mail. After the exam is administered, it will be returned by hand to your department office.
Online exams/quizzes: ReggieNet offers the capability to extend exam/quiz time for individual students who have been approved for the extended exam/quiz time accommodation. To extend exam/quiz time in ReggieNet, please see the following resources: How-To Video - How To: PDF
PLEASE NOTE: If a student is caught with unapproved materials during an exam/quiz, that student will be referred to Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution by a SAAS coordinator or staff member.
