Tests and exams

Test and examination accommodations are the most frequently used service used by students registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS). The following process applies for tests throughout the term, midterms and final exams:

  • The student must register to write their test, midterm or quiz with SAS, at least seven days prior to a test or midterm. For final exams, the student must register 14 days prior to the start of the exam period.
  • Once the student has entered this information online, he or she will receive an automatically generated email with a request to send an electronic copy of the test or exam to the SAS office that corresponds to the location of his or her class (north or downtown Oshawa location).
  • The exam must be submitted to SAS at least five(5) days prior to the test or exam. Instructions on how to upload a test/exam copy are found here.
  • The Test Centre also requires a hard copy of the test or exam to be delivered to the appropriate test centre location

Tests and exams for classes at the north Oshawa location are held at:
Test Centre - Student Life Building
Room 60
905.721.8668 ext. 6286 

Tests and exams for classes at the downtown Oshawa location are held at:
Student Life Office - Student Accessibility Services
61 Charles Street Building, Room 225
905.721.8668 ext. 5692 

Tests and exams accommodated through either UOIT campus location are scheduled to be written at the same time as the rest of the class and are subject to the same policies and code of behaviour. Per university policy, students are not permitted to leave or enter the room within the one-hour window for any exam, based on the actual class start time.

Space, time and equipment in the Test Centre are limited. If two students who require the same piece of assistive technology are scheduled to write at the same time, and there is only one piece of equipment, one of the students may have to write at another time. 

Also, if the student’s accommodation is for additional time, this may interfere with another class or test. The student will get in touch with you if they need to write their exam on a day or time other than that of the rest of the class.
