Submitting Test/Exam Requests
All students registered with Accessibility Services and who are approved for test/exam accommodations must submit their test/exam requests using the Accessibility Information Management System (AIMS)
- Book your tests/quizzes according to the course syllabus. Book your tests/quizzes into AIMS no later than 15 days before your test date. If your test runs more than 3 hours (class duration) than no accommodations would be applied. Your entry will be removed from your ‘upcoming events’ and your accommodations will be forwarded your instructor.
- If you have missed the 15-day deadline, please complete the form below and submit it to email@example.com. Please note that we are unable to guarantee that you will receive your accommodations for a late request.
If you are having trouble booking your tests/quizzes, please clear your browsing history and reopen your browser.
Final Exam Booking
- Please book your final exams into AIMS by the deadline. Your entry will be removed from your ‘upcoming events’ and your accommodations will be forwarded your instructor.
- Please ensure that you select the 'schedule a FINAL EXAM' from the menu only. Do not select the 'schedule a TEST, MID-TERM or QUIZ' link as that is only for in-class tests and quizzes. If you select a test or mid-term request for a final exam, you may not be scheduled accurately.
