General Information

The Exam Accommodation Center (EAC) is located in the Hixson-Lied Student Success Center. The EAC has no affiliation with the testing centers on campus and students are required to meet with an accessibility coordinator prior to working with their instructors to schedule future exams and quizzes in the EAC.

Exam Guidelines
  1. All exams should be referred to the EAC at least 1 week prior to scheduled exams/quizzes. See instructions on how to refer exams on our How to Refer Exams to the EAC page.
  2. All final exams must be referred to the EAC by Thursday of Prep Week.  Exams referred after this date will not be accommodated in the Exam Accommodations Center.
  1. The exam should be received by the EAC by 5pm on the day prior to the scheduled exam. This is required so that staff can prepare exams the night before to streamline the student check in process for the next day.
  2. A reminder e-mail will be sent to the professor the day immediately prior to the exam date if the exam is not in the possession of EAC staff.
  3. If the exam is not in the possession of EAC staff at the scheduled start time, attempts will be made to contact the instructor and department via e-mail and telephone.
  4. The student will be required to remain in the exam accommodations center for 15 minutes as EAC staff attempt to locate a copy of the exam
  5. If the exam is not located within 15 minutes of the scheduled exam start time, the student will be allowed to leave the testing center.
  6. The Professor/Instructor will be responsible for rescheduling the student’s accommodated exam.
