How to Request 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.
