* Students requiring test accommodations must submit the appropriate documentation to the Accessible Education Center (AEC). To ensure accommodations can be made, an appointment must be scheduled with an AEC counselor at least one month prior to your exam date to determine eligibility and prescribe test accommodations. Students unable to meet this deadline should contact the AEC as soon as possible; you may also elect to take the exam under standard conditions without receiving accommodations.
