Requesting Testing Accommodations

All Testing Accommodation Requests will be generated by your Accommodations Letter for Faculty/Staff (see above), IF you are eligible to receive testing accommodations through DSC. If you do not receive an email with an exam schedule for your class(es) within 3-5 days after you have sent your accommodation letters, it is your responsibility as a student to follow up with the instructor and DSC to schedule exams.

  • This accommodation is for registered DSC students who are eligible to receive testing accommodations using DSC facilities.
  • Please Note: If for whatever reason you must cancel your exam with DSC, please email dsctesting@uci.edu at least 24 hours prior to the start of the exam.

Please be sure to review the Disability Services Center Testing Policy.


Requesting DSC Notes Accommodation

All DSC Notes requests will be submitted by sending your Accommodations Letter for Faculty/Staff. If you have DSC Notes as an approved accommodation you will be given the option to select if you would like to request notes for each of your courses.

DSC will make every reasonable effort to locate note providers but cannot guarantee finding one in every class or by a certain deadline.

Any questions regarding DSC Notes requests may be sent to dscnotes@uci.edu.
