Alternative Testing Services

Please note that Alternative Testing Services are only available to students registered with the DIsability Resource Center.  If you have not yet registered with our office, please call us at (775) 784-6000 or stop by our office in the Pennington Student Achievement Center to schedule an intake appointment.

If you have already registered and are approved for Alternative Testing Services, please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Request your Instructor Letters

Submit an Instructor Letter Request Form online.

Step 2: Pick up your Instructor Letters from the DRC Front Desk

It may take up to 2 business days before your Instructor Letters are ready.

Step 3: Meet with your instructor(s)

Make sure instructors complete and sign the proctoring forms. It is your responsibility to return a copy of all signed proctoring forms to the DRC.

Step 4: Schedule your exams

The DRC asks that you have your proctoring forms signed and returned before submitting a request online or scheduling an appointment.

You may either provide your exam dates via an Alternative Testing Request Form or contact the DRC Alternative Testing desk to schedule an appointment with an Alternative Testing Coordinator.

If you are meeting with an Alternative Testing Coordinator, please bring your calendar with all exam dates and your syllabi for each class.  If a final exam time is not noted on your syllabus, please refer to the UNR Final Exam Schedule.

Step 5: Take your exams

Please review the Alternative Testing Policy to ensure that you are prepared to take your exams at the DRC.
