Exam Appointments

The Office of Accessibility Services is available to proctor BG campus exams that require additional assistance. If your only need is for extra time, please see your faculty member for proctoring the exam. Please be prepared to show your BGSU ID when you check in for testing.

All BG Campus students eligible for testing accommodations must complete the following steps.

  1. Schedule an appointment to meet with your professors during their office hours at the beginning of the semester. Share your accommodation letter and discuss your approved testing accommodations.

  2. Remind and make arrangements with your professor at least one-week before the exam. Find out if your professor will provide your approved accommodations or if you will need to make arrangements with the AS office.
    • When are you allowed to take the exam?
      • This is decided by your professor. If you need to take the exam at the AS office, our exam proctoring hours are 8:30am – 5:00pm. The latest exam appointment is at 3:00pm, as students must be finished by 5:00pm.
    • Where will you take the exam?
      • Will the professor provide the location or will you take the exam at the AS office?
    • If you are completing the exam in the AS office, who is responsible for delivering and returning the exam?
      • Our office does not pick up or return exams, so you and your professor must make these
        arrangements.
         
  3. Contact AS at least 3 business days in advance of the test date to make your exam appointment.
    • Schedule your appointment online below.
      • Fill in all of the required information, and click “Submit.”
    • Please be sure to indicate if you are eligible for a reader, scribe, testing environment with limited distractions, or computer.
       
  4. Arrive at the Accessibility Service office at your scheduled time or your exam will be returned to your professor.
 

 
Exam Appointment Request

To utilize the Accessibility Services office for exam proctoring, we require the following:

  • Students must submit their exam appointments at least 3 days in advance.
  • Faculty must submit their exam to our office at least 2 days in advance of the exam administration.
  • Lockdown Browser cannot be utilized in AS as it conflicts with technology used to provide certain accommodations (NOTE: students are video monitored in the office).

Upon receipt of the student's exam appointment confirmation email, faculty should forward the exam and proctored testing information sheet to our office. Thank you for your cooperation! These requirements help to ensure the integrity of exam proctoring in our office location for over 1,100 students with disabilities at BGSU.

Please see your faculty member for approval of dates, times and delivery methods. Your professor will receive a copy of this information when you submit your appointment request.
