Alternate Site Testing Procedures

In some cases, extended test taking time is one of the appropriate accommodations for a student. All alternate site testing must be completed without interruption.

Due to Disability Services Center's hours of operation and student schedules, there may not be a sufficient block of  time available on the intended date of the exam. In such cases, scheduling of the exam may be modified with the cooperation of the instructor.

PROCEDURE:

1. The student must present the "Testing Accommodation Form" from the Disability Services Center (DSC) to the instructor one week prior to the date of the exam.

2. The instructor completes the form including the date and time of the class exam, how the test will be delivered to DSC, how the exam will be returned to the instructor, and any specific testing conditions that need to be followed.

Test Delivery Options:

  • Instructor (or designee) can drop off at Roosevelt Hall 151 in a sealed envelope.
  • Instructor can email exam to nicole.scruggs@farmingdale.edu and DSC@farmingdale.edu.  A confirmation email will be sent once the exam has been successfully downloaded.
