Exam Scheduling

Students should meet with instructors early each semester to discuss potential academic conflicts and determine appropriate arrangements. Instructors will make arrangements according to AEC policies. Instructors may choose to administer testing accommodations themselves using AEC-approved alternatives.

Academic conflicts include:

  • Class times that start/end outside AEC Testing’s hours
  • Other classes that would overlap with a student’s prescribed extended time

To schedule accommodated in-person exams, students must follow the instructions outlined in our Testing Accommodations Flowchart. [pdf] 

Students should read AEC’s Testing FAQs thoroughly each semester to ensure they understand how to schedule exams, communicate with faculty, address scheduling conflicts, and show up to exams prepared.
