Testing instructions by location

Testing: Health Science Campus Students
For students testing at the HSC Academic Testing Center (ATC): a copy of the Accommodations Memo will be emailed to the Testing Center staff as well as to the Clinical or Academic Coordinator(s).

Instructors must arrange paper/pencil or computer-based tests with the ATC. Students need to work with instructors to ensure ATC staff is aware of test dates and times well in advance of the test. Students can visit Academic Testing Center for additional information and hours of operation and contact the ATC with any questions about UToledo testing processes and procedures prior to taking the first test. Students will need to arrive at the ATC 30 minutes prior to the scheduled testing time.

NOTE: Schedule tests early enough in the day in order to receive full accommodation time based on hours of operation of the ATC.

Testing: Law School Students
