The Testing Services Office provides testing accommodations for students with disabilities at OCC. If you received extended time, an alternate location, or other accommodations for exams in high school or if you recently developed a disability, you may be eligible for testing accommodations at OCC. Your first step is to submit disability documentation to the Office of Accessibility Resources (OAR). Next, you must complete an intake appointment with an Accessibility Specialist in the OAR (call or email: 315-498-2245, [email protected]). The type of accommodations you are eligible for will be determined during this appointment. You are responsible for informing your professors of your eligibility for accommodations and for utilizing accommodative services on campus.
It is your responsibility to schedule appointments for accommodative tests and quizzes with the Testing Services Office. Do not depend on your instructors to send exams to the Testing Services Office if you have not made an appointment at least 3 business days in advance.

Documentation can be faxed or mailed to the OAR office:
