Alternatives to traditional exams are available for persons with special needs. Arrangements for exams can be made through Health, Counselling and Disability Services (HCDS) at the LaSalle Building, 146 Stuart Street, 533-6467.
Students with short-term medical conditions (for example, a broken arm, sprained wrist, etc.) that require an exam accommodation MUST apply to the Exams Office.
Students who have been approved through HCDS and require the use of a computer to write a midterm examination must complete this form and submit to our office, along with a copy of the HCDS accommodation, a minimum of 10 working days prior to the exam. We will contact the instructor to make arrangements, and will notify you via email (Queen’s only) once all documents are received and the time/date is set.
