Testing and Final Exam Accommodations


  • Once students have submitted their semester requests for accommodations, faculty will be notified via email with an accommodation letter. 
  • It is the student's responsibility to schedule any quizzes/exams/finals with the testing center, through Accommodate. Students must submit exam requests via Accommodate at least seven (7) days in advance.
  • Students with evening classes (after 5pm) must email SACTesting@luc.edu regarding scheduling exams.
  • When students scheduled exams by the 7 day deadline, faculty will receive an automated email from Accommodate listing the students taking their exam. The automated email reminder is sent to faculty 4 days before the exam. Our office will also send another email the day before the exam if we have not yet received the materials.
  • Students may have conflicts with extended time exams and other courses. Students are encouraged to email their faculty and SACTesting@luc.edu directly regarding scheduling conflicts. SAC will approve exam times as discussed by student and faculty.
  • Academic Integrity: The Student Accessibility Center follows the University's Academic Integrity Guidelines. SAC will notify faculty members and and Deans regarding any students suspected of cheating. Possible sanctions may include receiving an F or 0 on the exam, the course, or more, as determined by the faculty member, Dean, and/or Provost. 
  • Late Policy: Students that arrive late for exams will not have their time adjusted. They will be allowed to complete the exam with the remainder of their time, or they will reach out to faculty regarding rescheduling.
  • Sick/Illness Policy: Students that are currently dealing with illness (i.e. COVID-19, Flu, Norovirus, etc.) will not be able to test in the SAC office, as it places the SAC staff and other students at risk. They will reach out to faculty regarding rescheduling the exam.
  • Faculty submit the exam (via drop off or uploaded into Accommodate) at least 48 hours in advance for SAC to proctor.
  • Online Exams: When scheduling an exam, students indicate whether the exam is in-person on paper, in-person online, or online-remote. SAC does not currently proctor online-remote exams during the Fall and Spring semesters.
  • For online exams, if your extended time is not reflected accurately, we advice you to not start the exam and contact our office (or your professor if the exam is remote)
  • Completed exams are scanned and uploaded into Accommodate for professors to securely access, or made available for pick-up within 2 business days.
  • Completed Exam Instructions for Faculty in Accommodate
  • Completed exams can also be picked up from our offices, M-F 8:30am-5pm.
  • If you have any questions, please contact us at SACTesting@luc.edu

*School of Law students should continue to coordinate directly with the Deans
