Students who require alternative testing services are encouraged to complete the following steps within the first two weeks of the semester, if possible.
Steps to completing alternative testing services
Step 1: Communicate your needs to Disability Resource Center
If you require alternative testing services, you must contact the Disability Resource Center (DRC). If you have never registered with the DRC, you will need to complete the application and meet with a coordinator.
Step 2: Complete an accommodation request form
Next, meet with the DRC to complete an Accommodation Request Form for each class you take per semester. Once the DRC has approved your accommodations, they will be sent to your instructor electronically.
Once you have submitted your request, you should follow up with your instructor(s). Please note that it may take several days for the DRC and your instructor to process your accommodations request.
It is your responsibility to complete and submit the Accommodation Request form as early in the semester as possible. Accommodations will be provided as specified on the DRC Accommodations Letter. Please contact the DRC if you think your accommodations need to be updated. Testing accommodations cannot be granted retroactively.
Step 3: Schedule your exams
It is your responsibility to choose a proctoring option and schedule your exam to be taken with the University Testing Center, at the DRC, or remotely.
Regardless of which test preference you choose, please be aware that all standard examination rules apply.
Be sure to take into consideration business hours, exam submission deadlines, and extended exam time accommodations (if applicable) when scheduling your exam.
Option 1: University Testing Center
Please visit the University Testing Center’s website for important information on their testing process and requirements.
Option 2: DRC Testing Center
Should you wish to test in the DRC testing center, please schedule an exam appointment by:

If you are having trouble scheduling your appointment with the DRC, please email DRCTesting@unr.edu for assistance.
Option 3: Remote Testing
When planning for your exam, be sure to consider the check-in tasks, exam due date, and length of the exam, including any extended time accommodations you may receive. The exam will automatically submit at the deadline regardless of the time you started the exam or your extended time accommodations.
