Testing Accommodations Procedures

1. Complete Request

Complete an Accommodation Request Form at the beginning of the semester or at least two weeks before a test/quiz and turn it in to DSPS. Your request will be reviewed to verify that you are authorized to receive the accommodations listed on your request. An “ADA Academic Accommodation Authorization” will then be completed which you must pick-up in DSPS. DSPS will email authorizations to instructors for online classes.

2. Take Authorization to Instructor

Take the completed “ADA Academic Accommodation Authorization” to your instructor at least one week before the exam/quiz and discuss your needs with him/her. For online classes, DSPS will email authoriza​tions to instructors.

3. Make Appointment

One week before each exam, make an appointment to take it in the DSPS Center by one of the following methods:

a) Schedule in person.

b) Phone (714) 628-4860

* Be sure to schedule your exam so that you: 1) have enough time to finish – remember, DSPS closes at 7:00 pm; 2) don’t miss the review before the test; and 3) don’t miss any lecture.

4. Remind Instructor

One class session before each exam, remind your instructor that you are taking the test in the DSPS Center. Exams may be delivered directly to the Center in (E-105), placed one of the DSPS mailboxes in A-204, or emailed to:

5. Problems?
