The Academic Success Center offers distraction-reduced exam proctoring for qualifying students registered with the Academic Success Center. Proctoring allows students to complete exams in a quiet, distraction-free environment while being proctored by a staff member. For students with certain disabilities, readers and scribes can also be arranged as part of exam proctoring. Proctoring requests can be initiated by either the student or faculty member. If the student is filling out the form, but must be pre-approved by the faculty member to have the Academic Success Center proctor the exam. You can find our proctor request form in the Forms and Documents page.
Title III of the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 dictates that an institution must make reasonable academic adjustments, provide auxiliary aids and/or services for those individuals with a qualified disability who self identify. To determine reasonable adjustments, auxiliary aids and/or services, the Academic Success Center staff will seek current documentation of the student’s disorder/impairment, as well as, information from appropriate University personnel regarding essential standards for courses, programs, services, activities, and facilities. A reasonable academic adjustment is one that does not require a substantial change in the curriculum or alter any of the essential elements or functions of the course, program, service, or activity. Academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services are determined on a case-by-case basis and course-by-course basis.
