The last day that students can sign up to take their final exams with SDS is Wednesday, April 23 since the office needs sufficient time to request copies of tests, plan for accommodation needs, reserve test rooms, and hire proctors/readers/scribes.

If you have not already assigned a final exam date for your class(es), it would be extremely helpful if you could notify students for whom you've received an Academic Adjustment Plan regarding the date/exam seating for your finals so they can submit a test request form before the deadline. Since we average around 300 students during finals week alone, we're unable to accommodate test requests after the April 23rd. deadline.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call Kelly Charnley, Testing Services Specialist, at 274-1257.
