Q: What happens now that exams are online? How do I get extended time for an online exam?  

Please communicate with your instructors to discuss your exam accommodations in their courses.  

  • Some instructors may opt for alternative assessments (e.g. essays, untimed exams) which would not require exam accommodations.  
  • If your instructor is creating online timed exams, please notify your instructor in advance if you will need extended time by providing them with your Accommodations List.  Faculty are able to set up extended testing time in Canvas and ExamSoft.  
  • Accessibility Services is available to instructors and students to consult about unique circumstances.  

Q: I currently have a note-taker assigned in my in-person class. Now that class is online, will I still receive a copy of the notes?  

Once you have learned from your instructor how they will adapt the course for virtual instruction, please let Accessibility Services know if you will need to continue receiving notes. 

Q: Does this affect Unscheduled Absence Plans (UAP)? 

Completed UAP agreements will be honored, though reasonable modifications to the structure of the agreements may be needed with the shift to online instruction and assessment. Please contact your instructors to discuss any additional barriers presented by changes to the course format. Let your Learning Specialist know through e mail if you need any assistance right away. 

Q: With the switch to all-virtual instruction, I anticipate barriers and would like to request accommodations. What are my next steps?
