Alternative Testing

Each quarter as a registered OSD student, if you plan to use accommodations for your classes you must initiate an accommodation request using the OSD Online Services system. The deadline for exam requests is 5 business days for all exams except finals which is currently Friday of week 7 (20 business days). Late exam requests are addressed on an individual case basis.

Your instructor must complete an alternative testing contract in order for you to schedule your exams with OSD. The alternative testing contracts serve as the guideline for faculty instruction regarding the implementation of the exam (i.e. materials allowed, if any, how much time will be provided for each type of exam for the entire quarter and any other items pertinent to the exam.

You must be registered with OSD to receive prescribed accommodations. Instructors are not required to provide any student with accommodations if they are not registered with OSD.
