OSD Exam Accommodations

Psychology Department Standard Practices 

The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) promotes and facilitates educational access for students with disabilities. Each year they serve about 1,000 students with various permanent or temporary documented disabilities. Students registered with OSD may be eligible for accommodations for course exams (midterms, quizzes, final exams). The department adheres to Academic Senate policy to make accommodations.

Psychology students with exam accommodations on their AFA letter will be scheduling their accommodated exams directly with the Triton Testing Center (TTC). To get started, you must fill out a TTC student registration form. Once the TTC has approved and created  your account, you will be able to log in to their system to confirm your accommodations and schedule your tests within the parameters (e.g., testing window) provided your instructor. Please do this as soon as possible to secure your accommodations. Your instructor will respond to your AFA letter with further information if you will not be taking your exam through the TTC. 

To receive your exam accommodations, you will need to sign up to take your exam at least 3 business days prior to your exam to ensure the TTC can secure adequate staffing and provide everything you need for your accommodations. You can find more information about the TTC and their process on their website

If you forget to sign up for your exam and the TTC is full, you will need to work with your instructional team to see if you can still receive your accommodations. However, it is not guaranteed that you would receive your accommodations at this point since you did not request your accommodations in a timely manner. Our office would need at least 5 business days notice for any exam we would proctor if the TTC was full. Please note that the exam would also need to be within our office operating times of 8:00 a.m- 4:30 p.m, Monday-Friday.

 

Please note: OSD exam accommodations are only for in-person exams. If your class is remote, you will be working with the instructional team for your exam accommodations. All reschedule exams will also be made through the TTC. 

If you are requesting a rescheduled exam (not OSD exam accommodations), please work with your course instructor or the TTC. The Psychology Student Affairs Office does not handle rescheduled exam requests.
