Testing Requests

Students who have provided appropriate documentation of a disability to the Disability Support Services (DSS) Office may request testing accommodations through the Testing Center. Space is limited, so students should provide 5 days advance notice for testing accomodations.  


How to Request Testing Accommodations:

    1. After your accommodations have been established through DSS, you will want to discuss a plan with your faculty members about when and where you will take your tests. You should also determine with your faculty as to whether you want to handle quizzes in the same manner as tests.
    2. As soon as you know your exam dates, complete the submission form at the Testing Center website:

      Student RegisterBlast 

    3. You should provide five (5) days notice for all testing accomodation requests.
    4. Check your NWF email for feedback from testing.
    5. Contact your faculty member and request the exam.
    6. Come to the Testing Center in building 400, room 278, at the day and time scheduled.  Arrive a few minutes before your scheduled time with ALL materials that your professor allows you to use during the exam. 
    7. ALWAYS contact your faculty member and the Testing Center immediately if you cannot come to a scheduled exam. Only your faculty member can give permission to take the test later if you miss your appointment.
    8. If you have questions, please contact Testing Center at 850-729-6016.



Faculty Information for Exams with DSS:
