Alternative Exam Arrangements
Students with disabilities may avail of alternative exam arrangements if this support is deemed necessary as part of the student's needs assessment.
Alternative arrangements are designed to ensure that equitable examination conditions are provided, to enable students to demonstrate their knowledge and competence notwithstanding their disability.
The onus lies on the individual student to ensure that the College is informed of the nature of his or her disability, and to apply for Examination Accommodations. All applications for Alternative Accommodations must be supported by acceptable medical documentation.
If a student requires alternative assessment or examination arrangements due to a temporary disability/medical condition, he or she can request temporary alternative exam arrangements. All requests have to be supported by the relevant corroborative evidence. Ideally, applications should be submitted at least 2 weeks in advance of exams.
For further information and application, please contact the Access & Disability Service.
