Exam Accomodations

Exam accommodations are alterations to exam conditions to ensure that University of Alberta students with disabilities have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of the material tested by an exam.

Examples of exam accommodations include:

  • extended time

  • use of a computer or adaptive technology

  • alternate formats of print material

  • special equipment or lighting

  • the assistance of a scribe or reader


Students registered with AR Augustana are encouraged to book all midterm exams online at the beginning of the term. If students cannot book early, the online booking deadline is a minimum of 7 days in advance of the exam. Deadlines for final exam registration are earlier - please check in ClockWork online for deadlines each semester

Student Responsibilities

Exam accommodations are a shared responsibility between the University of Alberta, instructors, and students. You play a crucial role in ensuring exam accommodations are organized and completed.

  • Print out and give each professor the Letter of Accommodation within the first 2 weeks of each term.

  • You are responsible for communicating with instructors to ensure the Exam Instruction and Authorization information is submitted, typically online in ClockWork.

  • Follow the deadlines as posted on the AR website and in ClockWork. If missed, very few options are available.

  • Enter your exam information into ClockWork before the deadline.

  • Frequently check your exam schedule in ClockWork.

  • Stay in touch with your Augustana Accessibility Advisor about any changes in your exam schedule.

  • Don’t come late for your exams - scheduled time will be deducted if you do.

  • Bring your own watch, calculator, eraser, pen or pencil.

  • Monitor your exam time. If you go over time the instructor will be informed and it may impact your mark.
