Schedule an Exam at the Testing Center

Schedule an exam or test. The Testing Center administers exams to testers that have been previously granted accommodations due to a documented disability.

Students seeking academic accommodations for TAMUCT course exams administered on campus are encouraged to register/request accommodations prior to testing. On the day of the exam, only accommodations previously granted are made for the tester; if other accommodations are requested of us that have not been previously approved, they are not allowed. The tester is referred back to the Office of Access & Inclusion for any additional accommodations requested for future exams.

Request A&I Accommodations. To request accommodations follow the Request A&I Accommodations steps above, under Get Started, select New or Returning Student.

Statement of Confidentiality

Student records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Texas A&M University-Central Texas (TAMUCT) respects the confidential nature of disability-related information. The University is obligated to maintain the confidentiality of such documentation.

Access to disability-related information by university personnel is on a need-to-know basis and only for the purpose of assuring appropriate accommodations. Instructors are regularly apprised of the confidential nature of disability-related information. Letters of Accommodation prepared by A&I do not give specific diagnoses. A list of the approved academic accommodations for that student is sufficient.

On a legitimate, educational need-to-know basis, A&I may discuss the impact or impairments caused by the disability and the corresponding accommodations approved with appropriate individuals on campus. Circumstances may include academic accommodations, instructional strategies, and resources or other circumstances specific to the individual. Whenever possible, A&I consults with the student prior to these conversations.

Texas A&M University-Central Texas and Access & Inclusion are prohibited by law from releasing any disability-related records or personally identifying information to any entity outside of TAMUCT including documentation provided to A&I by the student unless the student provides written permission or there is a court order. Students may request or approve the release of such information to persons or agencies outside of the university by signing a Release of Information. Entities outside the University includes parents of students over the age of 18. To discuss student-specific information with parents, a specific release of information must be signed by the student and placed in a student's file.
