The Accommodated Testing Center is designed to serve those students with academic adjustments originating from Colgate’s Office of Disability Services. Faculty members should verify such academic adjustments by reviewing the student ’s signed "Confidential Academic Adjustments" plan. Students are instructed to share this information with their course instructor well in advance of any exam.

Administering Exams

The current procedure of administering exams for extended time is:

  1. Individual faculty members should attempt to make testing arrangements with the help of their administrative assistant.
  2. In the event that this is not possible, faculty can rely on the Accommodated Testing Center to proctor exams. Students or faculty can visit to schedule an exam and click on the non-administrator link.


The center is located in B-4 McGregory Hall and for this semester, it will be open during the hours listed below. Students and faculty can schedule one to multiple slots in 15 minute increments depending upon their documented accommodation. At any given time, there are a maximum of ten chairs available in the center and these may fill.
