Accommodated Faculty Guidelines
The Testing Center is available for UNO students with a disability who require exam accommodations that cannot be provided in the classroom. The Testing Center works with the Accessibility Services Center to provide a secure, quiet, and controlled environment for accommodated testing exams.
Advanced scheduling is necessary for testing accommodations which are determined by referral from the Accessibility Services Center director, Anne Heimann (firstname.lastname@example.org). Available accommodations include, but are not limited to: a separate room, reduced distraction space, reader, scribe, word processor, large print, extended time, and Job Access With Speech (JAWS). Visit the Accessibility Services Center website for additional information.
