Exam Accommodation Procedures

In order for students to receive exam accommodations, each exam must be booked through the Access Resource Centre (ARC).
  • To book an exam with accommodations, students need to complete and submit an Exam Access and Accommodation Agreement form to us by emailing it to arc@unbc.ca or dropping the completed form off at the Access Resource Centre 10-1048.
  • Completed exam forms for midterms and quizzes must be submitted at least five business days before the examination date. Failure to book midterms or quizzes without sufficient notice may result in exam accommodations being unavailable.
  • The deadline for booking Fall and Winter final exams is no later than ten business days prior to the first day of the final exam period. Failure to book final without sufficient notice may result in exam accommodations being unavailable.
  • Invigilation of exams will be in accordance with the Arc Exam Invigilation Agreement that registered students are required to sign. Due to COVID-19 response measures, exam invigilation has been discontinued until further notice.
  • If the student is writing the test at a time that does not overlap with the rest of the class, the student is required to complete the confidentiality section on page 2 of EAAA form.
If you require assistance with booking your exams, please contact the ARC and one of our staff will be happy to guide you through the process.
