What is the OAR Testing Center?
- The OAR Testing Center is a secondary option for those students whose professors cannot accommodate their testing accommodation needs. The Center provides a quiet space for up to fourteen (14) students who are registered with the Office of Accessibility Resources to take their quizzes/tests. (Four non-internet connected computers are available.)
