Students who have a documented need for testing accommodations may be approved for extended time testing and/or testing in a low-distraction environment. Students with testing accommodations will take exams in the testing rooms at Disability Services.
This academic adjustment must be coordinated with the instructor, the student, and Disability Services prior to the testing period.
An appointment is required for all exams taken at Disability Services.
Seattle University asserts that academic honesty and integrity are important values in the educational process. Academic dishonesty in any form is a serious offense against the academic community. Acts of academic dishonesty or fraud will be addressed according to the Academic Integrity Policy.
Any instances of academic dishonesty will be reported and referred to the instructor for a response as it would be if the test were taken in the classroom. For more information please see University's Academic Integrity Policy.
For additional information, please see the Testing at Disabilities Services information sheet or contact the testing center at (206) 398-4378.
If no staff member is available and Disability Services must be temporarily closed due to an emergency, Disability Services will contact those students and faculty directly affected. All exams will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
