Disability Services Test Center Information

The most common accommodation approved by the Disability Services Office are extended time on tests/quizzes and/or in a distraction-reduced environment.

General Information: The Disability Services Test Center

  • The Disability Services Test Center (DSTC) will only be used to proctor exams for students with documented disabilities and who are eligible to receive exam accommodations.
  • A driving force for the existence of our test center has been to reduce the burden for faculty, by providing an appropriate location for students to utilize their exam accommodations.
  • Faculty can require students to take their exams outside of the Disability Services Office, so long as the student is given appropriate access to each approved accommodation. Testing in a location other than the DSTC can be a better option, as it provides the student and faculty the opportunity to communicate with each other during the exam.

Students have two options for utilizing exam accommodations: 

  • Collaborate with their instructor to take the exam in close proximity to the classroom.
  • Register to take the exam in the Disability Services Test Center (DSTC).  The Test Center is located on the 2nd floor of the Academic Services Building at the College of Saint Benedict.
