Requesting Testing Accommodations

Once documentation is submitted and approved, DSS 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 DSS office. 

Students must complete either the Common Exam Accommodation Form (CARF) or the Testing Accommodation Request Form (TARF) and submit in person or via email (dss@njit.edu) to the DSS 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 DSS 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 final exams. For example, the request form (CARF or TARF) for an exam scheduled to occur on Wednesday must be provided to DSS no later than the previous Thursday. 

We recognize a host of factors effect adherence to the submission deadlines.  If this occurs, please inform the DSS office and your professors to try and make alternative arrangements as soon as possible.
