The Testing Services Office offers a myriad of testing accommodations for students with disabilities. If you received extended time, an alternate location, tests read, etc for exams when you were in high school or if you recently developed a disability, you may be eligible for testing accommodations at Onondaga. Your first step is to submit documentation detailing your disability to the Disability Services Office. You must then complete an intake appointment with a Disability Specialist. Schedule an appointment by calling (315) 498-2245. The nature and extent of accommodations are based on your specific disability/disabilities and are determined during your appointment with a Disability Specialist. You will be given a form that indicates the accommodations you are eligible to use. Each semester, you will be responsible for giving a copy of the form to each of your professors so that they are aware of your accommodations.
Though you will make your professors aware of the accommodations you are eligible for, it is your responsibility to schedule appointments to complete tests and quizzes with the Testing Services Office. Do not depend on your instructors to send exams to the Testing Services Office if you have not made an appointment in a timely fashion (at least 3 business days in advance) or have not submitted a Testing Information form. Keep reading to see how to obtain one of these forms.
Accommodative tests are administered by appointment only. Take the following steps to make an appointment:

If you believe you need testing accommodations in addition to time extension or quiet space for placement testing, you MUST first submit documentation of your disability to the Disability Services Office (IEP, psychological evaluation, etc). Once your documentation is received and evaluated, you will be contacted by the Testing Services Office with details about when to complete placement testing with accommodations. Documentation can be faxed or mailed to the DSO office:
