  • Faculty must reserve a specific start time, with no more than five students per section of a course at a time due to limited seating.
  • Faculty may need to stagger reservation times or schedule students at an alternate time. 
  • Tests are only scheduled when a faculty member submits the request online.
  • Faculty must reserve a specific start time, with no more than five students per faculty member at a time due to limited seating. Faculty may need to stagger times to prevent overlaps.
  • If accommodated testing involves an online test, faculty should choose that option at the top of the “Special Instructions” in the reservation system. Otherwise, the default is a paper test.

How to Make a Reservation for the Centralized Accommodated Testing Spaces

Tests can only be scheduled through this online reservation system.

It is the faculty member’s responsibility to communicate with the student the date, time, location and requirements for testing, such as timely arrival and the TCU photo ID requirement.
  4. Hand deliver exams and the PDF cover sheet from your calendar reservation to the Assistant to the Dean of your college/school for pick up by 8:15 a.m., at least two days prior to the test date. There are no exceptions to this policy.
    • Each exam should include the student’s name, class, and section.

Requirements for Students

Students are required to follow the rules below or the test will not be administered.

  1. Bring a confirmed reservation showing date, time and place. The calendar invitation serves as confirmation.
  2. Bring TCU photo ID for identification.
  3. Arrive promptly. Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late will not be allowed to take their test and must reschedule via their faculty member. Students who do not show up for their test must be rescheduled with their faculty member.
  4. Sign an honor code statement of agreement before the test is administered.
  5. Behave ethically. A student may be dismissed from the testing space for inappropriate behavior such as evidence of cheating, disrespecting the proctor or violating testing space policy.
