Students requesting exam accommodations should complete an Accommodations Request Form 60 days prior to each exam period to allow adequate time for scheduling the logistics involved with these requests. Forms received after this date will not be considered unless extenuating circumstances have interfered with one's ability to meet this deadline.
All students who have been approved for accommodations based on a permanent or temporary disability will receive an official letter from the Dean of Students Office outlining their approved accommodations. Students are encouraged to keep these letters for their records should they submit an application for exam accommodations for any of the bar exams.
All law school examinations are scheduled through the Registrar's Office. For more information about examination procedures, please consult the Registrar's website. The Registrar will be notified in advance of all approved exam accommodations. Before the exam period, students will receive a written notification from the Registrar's Office to confirm the exam accommodations, times, locations, and instructions for each scheduled examination. Unless otherwise approved by the Dean of Students Office, any student who arrives late to an examination will have only the remaining allotment of time to complete the exam.
Under no circumstances should students discuss exam accommodations with their faculty members. All questions and concerns should be directed to the Dean of Students Office. Maintaining the integrity of the anonymous grading system is a student responsibility and a critical component to the student code of conduct.
