Notice for the Fall 2020 Semester

Student Disability Services will be proctoring exams on a limited basis during the Fall 2020 semester. Students who are enrolled in an experiential learning course or students who have assistive technology needs and live in the Austin area may sign up using the SDS Testing Center Reservation Request Form. All other requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. For further information, please contact the sdstest [at] (Testing Coordinator)

The SDS Testing Center administers exams for faculty whose students have been approved for testing accommodations on their 504 letter. Students must request their 504 letter at the beginning of the semester and share it with their faculty in order to use their testing accommodations.

To sign up for an exam in the Testing Center, students should fill out the SDS Testing Reservation Request Form preferably two days before their exam. If you have trouble accessing the form, please contact the SDS Front Desk. All exams and quizzes should be taken on the same day and time as the rest of the class. Any exam taken on a different date/time must be approved by the faculty. On the day of the exam, students should arrive to the Testing Center promptly to ensure they receive their full testing time. 

Once the student has filled out the request form, their faculty will receive an email with the details of the student's request. We rely on faculty to confirm the student's requested testing time and materials allowed during the exam. Once the professor has confirmed that the student's request is correct and no changes need to be made, the exam can be delivered to the SDS Testing Center in one of the following ways:

  • Upload the exam here
  • Email the exam and the following information to sdstest [at]
    • Date/time of in-class exam
    • Standard time allotted for exam
    • Additional materials allowed for the exam (calculator, notes, books, etc.) 

After the student has finished the exam, faculty will receive the exam via email to their SEU email account ( If faculty have concerns or feedback regarding an exam taken in the SDS Testing Center, they can contact the Testing Coordinator or fill out our Faculty Feedback Form. For additional information, please view our Student FAQs and Faculty FAQs.
