Student Appointments

Accommodated Students

  • Faculty members who have students with approved accommodations and will need to use the Testing Center, are encouraged to submit all of their exams in RegisterBlast at the beginning of the semester so their OSD students can make their appointments early.  If you have questions on what test information you need at time of test submission, feel free to contact your home campus Testing Center. 
  • Students in your course(s) that have accommodated testing for alternate test format, scribe or readers should be done at least 5 business days in advance to ensure students make their appointment within the 4 business days in advance policy. This will ensure the Testing and Accessibility staff have enough time to support the accommodation.
  • Students who's accommodations are not showing in their RegisterBlast Account when making their appointment should email their campus   Office for Students With Disabilities.
