Exam Accommodation and Schedules
Examination accommodations are the most widely used service by students registered with the Accessible Learning Centre (ALC). Tests, quizzes, in-class essays, midterms and final exams can be accommodated if they are 30 minutes or longer.
Exam accommodations are not designed to give you an extra edge over other students, but rather to help you achieve alongside your classmates. We follow the same policy established by Laurier’s Enrolment Services, and the same code of conduct for student behavior during the exam process applies whether you write at one of our locations or with your class. If you are eligible to receive this important service, there are certain responsibilities you must uphold.
Exam Registration and Deadlines
All tests, midterms and final exams bookings have fixed deadlines as set out below; booking forms must be received by the appropriate date(s). A separate form is required for each test or exam you plan to write with the ALC. Please ensure that all required information for each exam/test is included on your booking form; do not submit incomplete forms.

Confirming Exam Times and Locations
Midterm and test schedules are posted outside the ALC offices (Arts 1C11 in Waterloo and DAL105 in Brantford), and on our website, three days in advance.
The final exam schedule is available approximately one week before final exams begin.
ALC examination coordinators are available on the Waterloo and Brantford campuses to address any questions or concerns you have related to the exam process. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org (Waterloo) or email@example.com (Brantford).
