Testing Accommodations

Madison College provides accommodated testing services at all campus locations. Testing accommodations are changes in test administration that enable students with a disability to complete tests with approved modifications to accurately measure the student’s knowledge and skills.  Proctors are present to monitor and oversee accommodations. 

To receive testing accommodations for courses, you must have a valid Accommodation Plan through the Disability Resource Services (DRS) office. Your test reservation must be submitted at least five days prior to the test date. Late requests will not be accepted. You will receive an email confirmation and an Outlook appointment to your Madison College email account once your request has been approved. 

Course reservation requests are differentiated between the Truax campus and all other Madison College locations. Testing accommodations are also available for students taking the COMPASS placement exam and the TEAS V assessment test. Contact the Disability Resource Services office for approval prior to submitting your reservation request.
