How to Request  

Students

Follow the steps below to request an accommodated exam through OHIO Testing Services.

  • Step 1: No later than one week prior to your exam date, you must complete the student accommodated exam schedule form for each course during the semester. You will be asked to upload a copy of your accommodation letter from SAS. Your instructor is contacted upon submitting the accommodated exam schedule form which will prompt your instructor to submit the exam information through RegisterBlast to OHIO Testing Services. 
  • Step 2: Schedule each exam no later than 24 hours before your exam date using the RegisterBlast exam schedule portal.  You must login to the exam schedule portal in order for your accommodations to be selected when scheduling an exam. If this is your first time signing in, you will need to perform a password reset. To reset your password, select "Need password or account assistance" at the sign-in page then enter your OHIO email address. You will be emailed instructions for resetting your password. Once reset you can begin scheduling your exams using the RegisterBlast exam schedule portal. Once scheduled you will receive an email for the exam(s) that you schedule through OHIO Testing Services. 
  • Step 3: Arrive at the Athens campus Testing Services, 42 West Union Street (Bromley Hall Lower Level, West Union Street entrance), with a photo ID at least 5 minutes prior to your scheduled exam time.

Temporary safety precautions: Athens campus Testing Services follows the Presidential Health Directives and OHIO’s interim policy 44.102 for community health requirements. In addition to the health directives outlined in the above two resources, the Testing Center will also implement the measures below to decrease density and comply with the above policy and health directives:

  • All student examinations will need to be scheduled at least 24-hours prior to the exam. Testing capacity is limited, please schedule your exam as soon as you are able to secure your exam time. 
  • Social distancing markers have been placed on the floor of the Testing Center. We expect students and staff to follow social distancing guidelines and use the social distancing markers to ensure proper distancing between themselves and other students and staff.
  • On-premise waiting is allowed for a limited number of test takers, on a first-come-first-serve basis. 
  • Test taker processing may take longer than usual. All test takers are expected to come prepared for their exam (e.g., make sure you have a photo ID with you or if an exam has a fee it is expected that students have paid the fee prior to arriving at the Testing Center).  

Faculty

Once a student has made a request to take an accommodated exam through OHIO Testing Services, Faculty will receive an email with a link to register and/or submit exam and exam details for accommodated student(s) through OHIO Testing Services RegisterBlast system. Please follow the directions and complete this step as quickly as possible as students will not be able to schedule the exam until this is complete.
