Updates to Standard Procedures due to COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic and Ithaca College's period of Remote Instruction, the SAS testing center will be available by appointment.  

  • Students who need readers, scribes, or other similar accommodations should fill out the Test Accommodation Request Form as soon as possible and at least 5 business days before the exam.  Final exam requests must be submitted by the deadline posted by SAS. 

  • The few, if any, faculty who are administering Face to Face exams can email tests@ithaca.edu for accommodation support from our office.  

  • All extended time accommodations provided remotely should be provided by faculty. 

    • Support for altering times within Sakai or discussing accessible assessment options is available to faculty by emailing tests@ithaca.edu, by contacting Teaching and Learning with Technology, or be viewing upcoming or archived sessions on assessment provided by the Center for Faculty Excellence.  

    • Students should contact their faculty directly to request extra time.

  • Several accommodations like scheduling at the SAS testing center for a low-distraction environment, isolated room, or for reasons of alternative time may be impossible to provide.

    • Students or faculty concerned about a testing accommodation during this period should contact tests@ithaca.edu
