Accommodated testing

Students who face physical, medical, sensory, mental health or learning barriers to education may be eligible to receive accommodations for their tests. Accommodations may include, but are not limited to, additional time or use of adaptive technology. Students are encouraged to connect with an accessibility advisor to discuss their individuals needs.

To schedule an appointment with an accessibility advisor or schedule a test with approved accommodations, students may email studentsuccess@georgiancollege.ca or call 1.877.722.1523.

Missed and/or make-up testing

A missed test occurs when a student is unable to write a test within the scheduled class time. Faculty may grant approval to students requesting to write a missed and/or make-up test based on circumstances including, but not limited to, documented medical/family emergency situations and conflicting religious observance schedules. For more information, students can review Georgian College’s academic regulations regarding tests and exams.

Students who require a missed and/or make-up test, must first discuss available options with their class instructor. Testing Services requires confirmation and approval from faculty before scheduling a missed and/or make-up test. To schedule a test, or for more information, students may email studentsuccess@georgiancollege.ca or call 1.877.722.1523.
