Special Accommodation

ACCOMMODATED TESTING Fall 2020:

  • No faculty or staff office pick-up/drop-off. Exams must be emailed or sent via interoffice mail. Completed exams will be returned the manner in which they were received.
  • Students must have an appointment for an exam.
  • Students who miss the appointment time will be allowed to reschedule with confirmation from the professor. Students who arrive late may be required to reschedule if social distancing measures do not allow the student to begin the exam after the designated start time.

Email communication will be the most efficient form of contact.

Masks are required for students (Students will be permitted to remove the face covering during the exam if a speech section is required).

We have limited appointments due to social distancing and increased sanitation requirements. Please schedule early!

COVID-19 Statement

Due to the current restrictions regarding COVID-19, social distancing will be in effect on all campuses. Appropriate face coverings that cover both the nose and the mouth will be required to enter the Testing Center. Students will be expected to adhere to Centers for Disease Control, Georgia Board of Public Health, and University System of Georgia guidelines for preventative measures, including maintaining a distance of six (6) feet from other individuals. Noncompliance or removal of the face covering in any area of the Testing Center or waiting area will result in one warning. A second instance of noncompliance or removal will result in termination of the exam by Testing Center staff, without the opportunity for the student to reschedule or receive a refund.

If you have a medical reason that prevents you from wearing a face covering, please contact Accessibility Services PRIOR to scheduling your exam with the Testing Center. Accessibility Services will then notify Testing Services of the appropriate accommodation. Accommodations cannot be approved by Testing Center Staff. Students that arrive to test without face coverings and without approved accommodations by Accessibility Services will be required to reschedule.
