Testing Accommodations for Classroom Exams

Alternative testing arrangements may be provided as determined by the student's disability-related limitations.

For Mt. San Antonio College professor's convenience, ACCESS offers alternative testing locations for students with disabilities who require accommodations. This is to assist the professor with the legally mandated responsibility to provide testing accommodations for students with disabilities. However, if preferred, the professor may give the exam to the student under his or her personal supervision as long as the accommodations the student needs are provided.  These accommodations may include extra time, distraction-reduced environment, reader , scribe, etc.  If the professor prefers to have the student take the exam in the ACCESS office, the student should make arrangements for all testing accommodations directly with ACCESS at least one week (7 days) in advance.
