What happens now that exams offered in a distance-learning format? How do I get extended time for an 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 if you will need extended time.

I currently have a volunteer note-taker assigned in my in-person class. Now that class is offered in a distance-learning format, will I still receive a copy of the notes?

  • Once you have learned from your instructor on how they will adapt the course for virtual instruction, please let your instructor know if you would like to continue receiving notes.
  • You may find that you no longer need a note-taker due to the course design changes. For example, lectures that are prerecorded videos can be watched at your own pace.
