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. Visit the Approved Exam Accommodations page to learn more about exam accommodations and how they are implemented.

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 behaviour 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.
