Please provide a minimum of  three (3) weeks notification before a scheduled exam. If a student is not currently documented, they will need to complete the Test Administration Form, and submit it to the Office of Disability Services and obtain approval for testing accommodations prior to requesting accommodations on the On Campus ACT testing (Please see attached Test Administration Form here for required documentation ). Once approved, the Office of Disability Services will contact the Testing Coordinator to arrange for a testing time.
