Request a testing appointment

Students with approved accessibility accommodations related to testing have the option to write with their campus Test Centre. Students may request an appointment through the Test Centre section of Accommodate.

Before requesting a testing appointment, students need to ensure their semester request has been submitted in Accommodate and approved by Accessible Services, and all their testing accommodations are in place.

It is the student's responsibility to keep track of upcoming test dates and to request testing appointments at least 7 days (14 days for midterms and finals) in advance of the test date. Please refer to the following resources for a walk-through of how to request a testing appointment in Accommodate:
