Additional Information for Faculty

Students must meet with RDS every semester and provide accommodation letter to each of their instructors before scheduling exams online.  Students must schedule their exams at least one week (7 days) prior to the exam date and are encouraged to schedule them all at the beginning of the semester.  The program will not allow an exam to be scheduled if short of 7 days and students must have RDS approval to schedule it.  

Once an exam is scheduled online, you will receive an email indicating the date and time the student entered the exam.  This is usually the same date and time the students in the classroom will be taking the exam, unless you have made other arrangements with the student to take it at a different time.  

At any point, you will be able to login to our online program with your CSU EID and see the RDS students registered in your class and the students' accommodations.  You will also be able to approve the students' exam time, provide exam conditions (eg., scantrons, calculators, notes allowed?) and upload exams.  See information below for more instructions.
