Introduction

According to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, “students with documented disabilities may request modifications, accommodations or auxiliary aids which will enable them to participate in and benefit from all post-secondary educational programs and activities.”  This is confirmed and strengthened by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.  The Office of Disability Support Services at the University of Delaware provides assistance to students with a documented learning disability (LD), and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and/or other disabilities, which negatively impact their academic performance.  Students must first be determined eligible through DSS in order to use the testing options below.

Student Responsibilities

1.

Students must first register with the Office of Disability Support Services (DSS) and complete the DSS Eligibility Process.

2.

Discuss approved exam accommodations with your professor at the beginning of each semester.  If the professor can provide the accommodation within his or her department, and it is mutually agreeable with you, then the accommodation can be provided there.  In this case, you do not need to notify DSS, only your professor before each exam.

3.

Submit the DSS Exam Sign-up Web Form, for each exam, five days prior to the exam date.

4.

Remind your professor to deliver the exam to DSS in advance of each exam date.  

5.

You must obtain permission from your professor in order to take an exam at an alternate date and time that is different from the regular class time.

6.

Take your exam at the scheduled location and time.  Failure to do so could be considered a violation of the code of conduct.  It is the student’s responsibility to notify the professor and DSS if they are unable to sit for the exam at the scheduled time.
