Accommodated Testing

About Our Services

Foothill College offers reasonable test accommodations to our registered Disability Resource Center (DRC) students with documented disabilities.

To receive accommodated testing, you must first register with the Foothill Disability Resource Center (DRC) and also meet with a DRC specialist to determine eligibility.

Eligibility for accommodations is based upon the nature of the disability and the course curriculum.

Open Office Hours for DRC Students.

  • Final exams must be booked at least seven (7) business days in advance.
  • Failure to book an appointment may result in a forfeit of testing accommodations and you may be required to take your exam in class.

  • You made an exam appointment via Clockwork in MyPortal at least three (3) business days in advance of the instructor approved exam date and time; or seven (7) business days in advance of the instructor approved finals exam date and time.


15-Minute Grace Period Policy

TAC operates on a 15-minute grace period for all accommodated testing appointments, which allows students to start their exam fifteen (15) minutes before or after their scheduled testing appointment time.

  • Students who arrive 15 minutes late are not guaranteed their full accommodated testing time if they do not complete their exams prior to the Center’s closing.
  • A student arriving after the 15-minute grace period has ended will forfeit their accommodated testing time per instructor exam rules.


Appointment Cancellation/No Show Policy

Please note that it is the responsibility of the student who has made or requested appointments in the Testing & Assessment Center (TAC) to inform the center of any cancellations.  By not informing the TAC of your nonattendance, you may be taking a seat away from a fellow student.
