If a student requests to use their test accommodations for in person classes and you cannot provide the accommodations, they will need to send a test request email to you and include our test proctoring office (email@example.com) at least one week (7 day) in advance. From there we will check our office availability and ask for you to reply all with your decision.
The DAS Test Proctoring Info for Faculty F21 document has more details on what we need from you. Please note proctoring hours are 8:30 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
