Test Proctoring for Students with Disabilities
We believe testing accommodations work best when you make arrangements with your professor in case you have questions during a test. One of the testing accommodations used by some students with disabilities is testing in a semi-private environment. When it isn't possible to receive this particular accommodation via your instructor, you may request proctored testing through Academic and Career Services.
Please understand that there is no testing center. We have two small spaces and a part-time graduate assistant; therefore, not all requests for test proctoring can be honored. The sooner you make your request, the better your chances of getting it approved.
To request test proctoring, go to MyLC, and then "Online Forms."
You must accept the following conditions before you may submit your request:
- I verify that I am a student with a disability with an approved accommodation memo for the current semester.
- I verify that I have given my professor(s) a copy of my accommodation memo and communicated my plan to use test proctoring.
- I understand that my request(s) for test proctoring must be made no later than 3 business days prior to the intended test date.
- I understand that test proctoring starts no earlier than 9 a.m. and no later than 3 p.m. (not including the final exam period).
- I agree to abide by the Lynchburg College Honor Code.
- I understand that any suspected violations will result in the testing being interrupted immediately and turned over to my instructor for further review.
- If I violate the Honor Code, I understand that I will lose my privilege to use test proctoring through Academic and Career Services for the remainder of the semester (minimally).
You must be your own advocate in order to use accommodations, and you are expected to communicate your disability-related needs to your instructors and other College personnel in a timely manner.
