Glendon Accessibility Services and Student Services work in partnership to support alternate exam/test accommodation services for students with disabilities.

Request an Alternate Exam

  1. Register with the Accessibility Counsellor at the Accessibility, Well-Being and Counselling (AWC) Center. Whether you are a new or continuing student, you need to be currently registered with the accessibility services to access alternative exam/test scheduling services. 
  2. Review the alternate exam/test scheduling procedures. Before we can begin scheduling your alternate exam/test requests, you need to sign the Alternate Exam/test Agreement form and return it to the accessibility counsellor
  3. Connect with your course directors. You are encouraged to set up a time in the first few weeks of class to discuss your academic accommodation needs with your course directors.  Check your course outlines as soon as you receive them for a list of upcoming test/exam dates.
  4. Submit your alternate exam/test request online. It is the student responsibility to submit their request at least 3 weeks in advance of the scheduled dates.
  5. Review your request history before logging off to ensure accuracy of all tests details.
  6. Check your alternate exam or test booking information online one (1) week prior to the scheduled date. Report any discrepancies to the Alternate Exam and text office immediately.
  7. Changes might occur after a booking has been posted online. Please ensure you check online regularly for updates.
  8. Review the Policies and Procedures for writing your alternate exam/test.
  9. Activate your library ACAD lab account in case your alternate exam/test needs to be printed on a printer in one of the student computer labs on campus.
