Computer Request Form

Midterms and Tests

If you are authorized for, and require, use of a computer to complete your exams, you must submit a request in the online system at,  You are strongly encouraged to review your term course syllabi and submit all requests for the term no later than September 30 (Fall) and January 31 (Winter). The exams office may not be able to make accommodations for students who do not make a request a minimum of ten (10) working days in advance of the test.

Accommodated exams are scheduled at the same date and time as the rest of the class (generally during class time), unless a student's accommodation prohibits scheduling at that time. Extra time will be placed at the beginning or end of the test, dependent on your class schedule. If an accommodated exam must be moved, it will be moved to the nearest possible time following the originally scheduled exam date and time.

Exam accommodations will be posted to the online system the week prior to your scheduled test:

  • If you have a midterm test on a Monday or Tuesday, the time and date will be posted on the Wednesday prior.
  • If you have a midterm test on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, the time and date will be posted on the Friday prior.

If you do not require an accommodation that you have requested, you must cancel the accommodation, in writing, to the Exams Office. Failure to cancel and failure to appear will result in a charge of $25-$60 per missed exam based on arrangements that have been made.


Requests cannot be submitted for final exams in December and April; please see below for details.


Midterms for students NOT authorized for use of a computer

If you are not authorized for use of a computer, you must submit your accommodation letter to your instructor to receive accommodations. You should do this a minimum of one week in advance of the test, to ensure your instructor has adequate time to make the appropriate arrangements. Instructors may not be able to make arrangements if they have not been given sufficient notice.
