Scheduling Exams

We recommend speaking with your instructor about your Alternative Testing request before you submit your exam scheduling request through myDPRC. While the DPRC Testing Agreement needs to be completed by your instructor, you can still submit your exam request before the Testing Agreement is submitted. In that case, the DPRC will tentatively schedule you, but before the DPRC can confirm and approve your exam request, we will need the Testing Agreement submitted by your instructor.

In your Faculty Notification Letter, your instructor is given a link to complete the Testing Agreement. They can also access the Testing Agreement through their myDPRC faculty portal.

To review your Testing Agreement once your instructor has completed it:

  1. Log into myDPRC
  2. Click on “Alternative Testing” in the “My Accommodations” menu on the left
  3. Select your class from the drop down menu
  4. Click on “View Alternative Testing Detail”
  5. Review your agreement. Contact your professor if you see any conflicts with dates/times or if there are errors

Please schedule exams in myDPRC at least 3 business days before a quiz, 5 business days before an exam, 10 business days before a midterm, and 20 business days before finals during the the University-sanctioned Finals period.

Modifying Exams

If you’ve scheduled an exam and realize that you have scheduled the wrong date, time, or if your instructor has changed the date/time of the exam, you can reschedule the exam through myDPRC. Please note that if the day or time that you are rescheduling for does not match what is approved on the Testing Agreement, we will need confirmation from your instructor about the change before we can approve your request.

  2. On the left hand bar in the “My Accommodations” Menu, click on ‘Alternative Testing.’
  3. Find the exam request you wish to reschedule, click ‘Modify Request’ found on the right side of the request.
