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.)
  • Given that there are fourteen (14) spaces available, the center requires advanced reservation (3 days notice) and is scheduled on a first-come first-served basis. The Center is NOT a drop-in service.
