Student Exam Scheduling 


Important points to remember:


All exams need to be scheduled at least 5 business days (one full week) before the exam. So if today is Monday, it is the last day for you to schedule an appointment for next Monday.


If you miss the exam signup deadline you will need to fill out a “Late Exam Sign Up Sheet” at the DRC or make arrangements directly with the Testing Coordinators.


Final exams need to be scheduled as early as possible, and there will be a set deadline each semester that is usually a month in advance.


All exams taken in the DRC need to be at the same date and time as the class is taking them, unless otherwise specified by your professor. Your professor can email, call, come in person or note on the exam packet their consent to an alternate exam starting time.


When scheduling exams, make sure you are signing up for the correct dates. You can double check the appointments you have made under “My Calendar” in clockwork.

Accommodations from the DRC

 

 

At the University level, students have the right not to be identified as disabled. For this reason, if a student with a disability would like to request academic accommodations, he/she takes the responsibility of contacting the DRC. In order for the DRC to assist the student with academic accommodations, the student must provide written documentation of the disability from a diagnosing and licensed professional.

 

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) at UNF offers a wide variety of legally mandated services to students with documented disabilities. After reviewing your documentation, a member of the DRC Team meet with the student to assist in determining appropriate academic services and accommodations based on the documentation and recommendations from the licensed professional. Upon completion of this registration process, the student will follow the procedures to receive the academic accommodations.  Faculty will be informed of the student’s accommodations.

 

Accommodations letters will be created and will be available to the DRC student and faculty. Registered students will utilize the Clockwork portal > Self-Registration to request their accommodations letters for each new course in which they are registered during a semester.

 

 

TYPES OF ACCOMMODATIONS 

 

Services and accommodations are provided to DRC-registered students who have completed the registration process. Modifications of policies, practices or courses are not required if they would fundamentally alter the nature of the course or academic program. Similarly, any services that would result in an undue financial or administrative burden may not be provided. Below are examples of but not limited to the types of accommodations or services that are provided by the DRC:

 

Qualified interpreters

Assistive listening devices

Digital recorders

Alternate texts/e-books

Note Takers

Readers

Scribes

Extended test times

Use of calculators

 

Temporary accommodations for those students who provide documentation supporting services but for a limited time. (See Temporary Physical Impairments below )

Once the student receives academic accommodations for which he is eligible, a letter listing such accommodations is created in the Clockwork System. The letters are emailed to the student’s professors. Each semester, the student will be able to forward the accommodation letters to his professors through the Clockwork portal.  Hard copy letters are also available for student and faculty.

 

 

TEMPORARY PHYSICAL IMPAIRMENTS 

  

Accommodations can be provided to students with temporary physical impairments.  Students will be required to provide medical documentation of the temporary impairments (letter from physician or medical documents showing the nature and extent of the injury); the student will meet with a DRC staff member to discuss what academic accommodations the student would need.  For students with hand or arm injuries, the DRC can contact the student’s professors to discuss obtaining a note taker and to arrange any testing accommodations the student may need.

MEDICAL WITHDRAWAL:

If a student has a medical or psychological disability that seriously interferes with the student’s ability to successfully complete a course, the student may petition for a Medical Withdrawal by contacting the Medical Compliance Officer at (904) 620-2175

 

PARKING PERMITS

UNF Parking Services (904) 620-2815 Parking Staff will issue a 30- day temporary disability parking permit for use on campus. If the student needs a disability parking permit for a longer time, applications for a Temporary Florida Disabled Parking Permit can be found at the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Website  A doctor’s signature will be required.

 

 

SERVICE and SUPPORT ANIMALS

As established and defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals shall not be excluded from UNF facilities or activities. (Exceptions may exist in some sterile environments, areas requiring protective equipment or clothing, or as mandated by health codes.)

 

Service animals are defined as: animals that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Such animals might guide individuals with impaired vision, alert individuals who are hearing impaired to intruders or sounds, pull a wheelchair, or fetch items used in daily living (Ref. ADA Title III, 28 CFR Sec 36.104).

 

Assistance animals, usually referred to as Emotional Support animals, normally provide passive support to people with disabilities. ESAs can be a therapy tool or an integral part of a treatment process. They do not assist individuals with a disability to perform the activities of daily living. Therapy animals are not covered by laws protecting and giving rights to service animals. Approval of the presence of a therapy animal falls within the authority of the university regarding accommodations to a disability.

 

Documentation of the student’s disability and the need to have an emotional support animal must be provided to the Disability Resource Center. Upon approval to have the animal on campus, Housing & Residence Life will be notified of the animal’s presence in the residence halls.

 

Student who request a service or emotional support animals must comply with state and local requirements regarding registration and licensing of the animal as well as having current veterinary health certificates.

 

Flexible Attendance Accommodation Guide 

 

A common request by students with a medical condition/disability is for their absence from a class meeting to be 'excused' and not subject to the sanction which would be enforced ordinarily by the class instructor. 

Students most likely to request modified attendance policies as an accommodation are those with serious health-related disabilities that flare up episodically.

Students with psychological disabilities who are experiencing an acute exacerbation of symptoms may also request flexibility in the application of attendance policies. 

Federal law requires colleges and universities to consider reasonable modification of attendance policies if required to accommodate a student’s disability. In making this determination, two questions must be answered:

Does the student have a documented disability that directly affects his/her ability to attend class on a regular basis? The DRC will make this determination based on a review of documentation from the student’s health care provider.

Is attendance and participation an essential element of the class? More specifically, would modification of attendance policies result in a fundamental alteration of an essential element of the program? The DRC will collaborate with the faculty member to make this determination.

 

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has provided the following guidelines to determine if attendance is an essential part of a class

What does the course description and syllabus say about attendance requirements?

What elements of the class experience are used to calculate the final grade?

What are the classroom practices and policies regarding attendance?

To what extent is there classroom interaction between the instructor and students and among students?

Do student contributions constitute a significant component of the learning process?

Does the fundamental nature of the course rely on student participation as an essential method for learning?

To what degree does a student’s failure to attend constitute a significant loss to the educational experience of other students in the class?

Below are guidelines for how to handle 'flexibility in the application of the attendance requirements / policy may be required' as an accommodation

Students registered with the DRC are required to provide a Notification of Accommodations to class instructors specifying the accommodations determined in collaboration with the DRC. These accommodations will have been determined to be 'reasonable' and may include 'Flexibility in the application of the attendance requirements / policy may be required'.

 

This lets you know that:

The student’s medical condition or disability has been verified by the submission of appropriate documentation, that they are registered with DRC and that the student's medical condition or disability may result in unavoidable absences. 

The intent is to take the “automaticity” out of the application of the attendance policy, and enable the instructor to consider the absence as 'excused' even if the standard limit of excused absences has been reached.

This accommodation is not a free pass, and students with this accommodation are cautioned by the DRC that even if their absence is due to their disability and beyond their control, such absences may well impact their grade, particularly if the class grade includes an element of participation, in-class exercises, quizzes which contribute to the final grade and/or written assignments. Students are also advised that they are responsible to keep up with reading, obtain class notes from a fellow student, and make up any written assignments they may have missed. Students should make contact with class instructors to discuss the way in which this accommodation will work in practice and to agree upon appropriate procedures and protocols.

Instructors are not obligated to create extra work for either the student or themselves as a substitute for “participation” in class or missed assignments, but are encouraged to consider reasonable opportunities for the student to make up their absence. 

 




 

Requesting Accommodations for Courses Each Semester

 

Self Registration- Accommodations Request/Renewal with Clockwork

 

You can request accommodations for each of your courses during a semester by going to myWings>Student Tab>My Records>Clockwork link and then selecting the “Self Registration” link in the Clockwork student user portal.

 

If you do not need any alterations to the accommodations listed in the Clockwork Portal for a given course an email will be sent to your professor providing them access to your letter upon submitting you accommodations request. If you do need an alteration you will be required to meet with a DRC staff member to discuss the changes needed.

 

The DRC recommends you request your accommodations for a semester as soon as possible in order to use your accommodations immediately. Professors who do not receive an accommodation letter will not be obligated to provide you with appropriate accommodations.

 

The Disability Resource Center recommends you schedule a meeting with each of your professors to discuss accommodations that will be utilized in each class.

 

IMPORTANT:  Accommodation Letters are only good for the semester and year the student is attending.  You will need to request a new accommodation letter for each course during each semester you are enrolled.

Title II states, in part, that “no otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination” in programs or activities sponsored by a public entity. Section 504 states, “No other wise qualified individual with a disability in the United States... shall, solely be reason of her or his disabilities, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance...”

 

All ADA/Section 504 complaints, excluding those filed against the ADA/Section 504 Compliance Officer should be addressed to:

Section 504 Detail

 

The regulation implementing Section 504, at 34 C.F.R. 104.4, provides: 

 

No qualified person with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity which receives Federal financial assistance. 

 

Discriminatory actions prohibited: A recipient, in providing any aid, benefit, or service, may not, directly or through contractual, licensing, or other arrangements, on the basis of disability…

 

Deny a qualified person with a disability the opportunity to participate in or benefit from the aid, benefit, or service; 

 

Afford a qualified person with a disability an opportunity to participate in or benefit from the aid, benefit, or service that is not equal to that afforded others; 

 

Provide a qualified person with a disability with an aid, benefit, or service that is not as effective as that provided to others; 

 

Provide different or separate aid, benefits, or services to persons or to any class of persons with disabilities unless such action is necessary to provide qualified persons with disabilities with aid, benefits, or services that are as effective as those provided to others; 

 

Otherwise limit a qualified person with a disability in the enjoyment of any right, privilege, advantage, or opportunity enjoyed by others receiving an aid, benefit, or service. 

 

A recipient may not, directly or through contractual or other arrangements, utilize criteria or methods of administration that (i) have the effect of subjecting qualified persons with disabilities to discrimination on the basis of disability, (ii) that have the purpose or effect of defeating or substantially impairing accomplishment of the objectives of the recipient's program or activity with respect to persons with disabilities.
