Can't make it to campus to test for your online or hybrid course? Find a testing center in your area to arrange a remote test, and have the exam returned to your instructor. Please note that various proctoring fees and scheduling requirements may apply.
Alternative testing is an appropriate service for many students with special needs. Testing accommodations for students with documented disabilities must be arranged by the student through the Student Access and Accommodation Services (SAAS) office. For more information on what documentation is required, contact Student Access and Accommodation Services at 309-268-8259.
Students requiring extended time only for testing needs may complete exams during regular Testing Center hours. To test with a separate area, assistive technology, or other accommodations, please schedule an appointment with Student Access and Accommodation Services at least 48 hours in advance.
