Fred Smithers Centre

Test and Exam Accommodations


There are a variety of accommodations that the Fred Smithers Centre can provide clients. These may be extra time on tests and exams, or assistive technology. The accommodations that a student receives is based on their documentation, and an individual plan made at the intake meeting with the Disability Advisor.


Accommodations may be necessary to ensure that students are able to reach their academic goals. We want to ensure that all students have equal opportunity to do their best by providing appropriate accommodations. These accommodations are based on the documentation of disability provided by their Doctor or Psychologist that was provided at intake and may be updated during their university career.


Quizzes, Tests, and Midterms

It is the student’s responsibility to request test and exam accommodations. A separate request form must be filled out for each test/exam.


The Fred Smithers Centre requires at least one week’s notice for quizzes, tests, and midterms. One week’s notice means that requests must be submitted 7 days before the test date, and must be submitted no later than 4pm. For example, a request for a test on Wednesday must be submitted by the Wednesday before, by 4:00om.  Due to the volume of requests that we receive, late test requests will not be accepted and accommodations will not be granted.


The test/exam request form can be completed online. Once completed, the Fred Smithers Centre will be in contact with your Professor.
