Requesting Accommodations For Final Exams at Bryn Mawr

Spring 2022

Schedule for Self-Scheduled Exams for Students Eligible for Accommodations

Please note that, if you have accommodations and have a self-scheduled exam at Bryn Mawr, the schedule for such exams is different than the one posted on the Registrar’s website. Room assignments are also different. You can find information specific to exams for students with accommodations on the Access Services website. Thanks to assistance from the Registrar, Access Services has a list of all Bryn Mawr students with a self-scheduled exam(s); there is no form to complete and/or return.

However, be advised that there will be no evening exams offered and there are no self-scheduled exam times available (for students needing accommodations) for Monday, May 2, Sunday, May 8 or Friday, May 13. If you need accommodations, plan accordingly.

If you need testing accommodations and have exams that are…

  • Self-scheduled at Bryn Mawr:

Please be on the lookout for an email that will come from Access Services regarding the specific procedures, times and rooms for self-scheduled exams if you need accommodations. You will only be emailed if you have a self-scheduled exam as per the Registrar. You can also find this information on the Access Services website.

Haverford students receiving accommodations while taking a Bryn Mawr class that has a self-scheduled exam must contact Sherrie Borowsky (sborowsky@haverford.edu) and ask her to notify Access Services at Bryn Mawr on your behalf no later than Thursday, April 21, 2022.

  • Scheduled at Bryn Mawr:

Make arrangements for accommodations directly with your professor well before the last class.

  • Self-scheduled at Haverford:

Please contact the Haverford Registrar, located in Chase, to make  arrangements.  Procedures at Haverford for self-scheduled exams (if you need accommodations) are different than here at Bryn Mawr; it is your responsibility to be informed.

Keep in mind that all students are subject to Bryn Mawr’s Honor Code when taking any exam, and that it is your responsibility to monitor any time allowance and/or other pre-approved accommodations. If you are pre-approved to use your laptop to word-process a writing intensive exam, be reminded that you may only use your laptop to word-process and you may not use any other feature of your laptop and/or the internet.

If you have any questions about any of these procedures, contact Deb Alder, Director of Access Services, at dalder@brynmawr.edu or 103 Guild, x7351 no later than April 28, 2022.


Procedures for Self-Scheduled Exams at Bryn Mawr for Students with Accommodations

Spring 2022

Review this information carefully.  Read thoroughly.

General Information regarding the schedule and available rooms:

  1. The Honor Code is in effect during accommodated self-scheduled final exams.  You are responsible for monitoring your exam behavior and testing accommodations.
  2. You may take a self-scheduled exam on any of the dates/times listed in the document entitled “Schedule for Spring 2022 Self-Scheduled Exams.”  Make sure you refer to the correct document!  There is one for students who receive time-and-a-half (1.5x) and there is a different one for students who receive double-time (2x). 
  3. Do not follow the dates/times for self-scheduled exams that are listed on the Registrar’s website.
  4. Note (from the “Schedule”) that there are no exam times for students with accommodations offered on May 2, May 8 or May 13. Plan accordingly.
  5. Note that there are no exams that begin at 7 p.m. Plan accordingly.
  6. You will take your exam with accommodations in rooms that are different from students who are not eligible for accommodations. Available rooms are listed on the “Schedule”, at the very top. You may use whichever room you prefer as long as it is listed on the document. If you are pre-approved for a private room, that room location will be emailed to you prior to the start of the exam period. If you are a Haverford student needing a private room, you will be assigned one by our Registrar, when you pick up your test.

Specific Procedures:

  1. Arrive at Guild at least 15-20 minutes prior to the listed start of the test. This will allow you time to fill out the necessary paperwork and to travel to your testing location without detracting from the time you have to complete the test.
  2. While in Guild, you will be given a small exam card to complete. Make sure you check off “Pre-approved for alternate test location.”
  3. On the outside of the white testing envelope, you must indicate the time you started and the time you ended the test, as well as which room you used.
  4. Do not bring book bags to the testing room.  Bring only the materials you will need for the test.
  5. If you are pre-approved to word-process for the exam, you will need to bring your own laptop.  You will need to print out your test responses in the library prior to handing in your exam.  Allow at least 15 minutes to do this. For example, if you finish your exam at 2 p.m., you have until 2:15 p.m. to print out your exam answers.  Then, put them in the white testing envelope and return the entire package.
  6. If you are eligible for 50% additional time to take an exam (1.5x), you may bring a snack and/or beverage to the exam room to eat while taking the test.  Please clean up after yourself when you leave.
  7. If you are eligible for double time (2x), you may bring a simple meal to the exam room and take a 30-minute break.  You must stop working, turn over your exam, and stay in the test room during your break.  You may not use any electronics during your break, including your phone.  Please clean up after yourself when you leave.
  8. REMINDER:  All exams must be finished by the times listed on the “Schedule” (adding 15 minutes if you need to print out responses in the library) and returned to the appropriate location listed on the “Schedule.” No exceptions.
