Testing Center

Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Collapse All Expand All

Please contact the Testing Center as soon as possible at (970) 382-6938 or testingcenter@fortlewis.edu if testing appointments need to be canceled or changed.  When you change an appointment, your professor will be contacted again to approve the new test time and date.

The Testing Center requires that appointments are made in advance. To make an appointment, call, email, or stop by the Testing Center 5 days in advance (14 days in advance for tests to be taken during final exam week).   After you make an appointment, your professor will be emailed to approve the date and time that you plan to test.  Your testing appointment should be as close as possible to the time that the rest of the class is testing.  Unfortunately, the Testing Center cannot guarantee availability without a scheduled appointment.

Students with testing accommodations may take their tests, once approved, in Noble Hall, Room 287, during the Testing Center’s Hours of Operation. Appointments are necessary and must be made one week prior to an exam.  It is highly recommended to make final exam appointments 14 days in advance. The student is responsible for notifying the Professor of his/her plan to take an exam in the Testing Center.  

It is very important for the smooth running of the Testing Center that every effort is made to be on time for appointments.

The Testing Center is responsible for providing services to students with documented disabilities who are entitled to testing accommodations. Dian Jenkins, Director of Disability Services, decides whether a student is entitled to testing accommodations, and, if so, what those accommodations are. The Testing Center will provide the accommodations based on the accommodations letter issued each semester by Dian Jenkins. If you think you may qualify for these services, contact Dian Jenkins [jenkins_d@fortlewis.edu or (970) 247-7459.

Each professor decides how the Testing Center will receive the test. It is the student's responsibility to discuss this matter with their professor and notify the Testing Center when scheduling the appointment how it will be delivered for proctoring. Options include:

  • Test can be emailed to testingcenter@fortlewis.edu.
  • Test can be delivered by the faculty member to the Testing Center mailbox in Noble 280 or slipped under the door of room 287.
  • Test can be brought by student to the Testing Center if in a sealed and signed envelope.

The professor also decides how the Testing Center will deliver the test. It is the student's responsibility to discuss this matter with their professor and notify the Testing Center how the professor wants it returned. Options include:

  • Test can be returned to the professor's office or mailbox by a Testing Center student worker.
  • Test can be sent back by student in a sealed and signed envelope.
  • Test can be picked up by the professor from the Testing Center mailbox in Noble 280.

Testing Center Policies

  • Students may only use the tools that their accommodations or their professors allow.
  • Students must surrender the test to the proctor at the end of the testing period.
  • The Testing Center is guided by the principles of academic integrity. Any student found cheating by the proctor will not be allowed to complete the test and will be reported to the professor and the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
