Requesting Testing Accommodations

Once documentation is submitted and approved, the Office of Accessibility Resources and Services (OARS) will provide electronic access to the required forms via the Google drive and attach the forms to various emails.  Hard copies can also be obtained by visiting the OARS office. 

Students must complete either the Common Exam Accommodation Form (CARF) or the "Student Section" on the Testing Accommodation Request Form (TARF) and submit in person (Fenster Hall, Room 260) or via email (dss@njit.edu) to the OARS staff. The student will receive an email confirmation containing the exam date and time, testing location, and allowed materials during the exam once this information is provided by the professor/course instructor. 

In order to offer the OARS staff and professors/course instructors the appropriate amount of time to coordinate exam accommodations, testing accommodations requests must be submitted no later than 3 business days (Monday- Friday) in advance of the exam date.  For final exams, requests must be submitted 14 business days in advance of the first date of final exams. For example, the request form (CARF or TARF) for an exam scheduled to occur on Wednesday must be provided to OARS no later than the previous Thursday. 

We recognize a host of factors effect adherence to the submission deadlines.  If this occurs, please inform the OARS office and your professor(s) to try and make alternative arrangements as soon as possible. The Office of Accessibility Resources and Services does not reschedule or allow makeup exams without first receivng approval from the professor/course instructor.  Additional documentation and approval from the Office of the Dean of Students (Campus Center, Room 255) may also be required prior to requesting a rescheduled or makeup exam. Please contact OARS to determine the appropriate steps and documentation for a makeup exam.
