Office of Disability Services for Students Overflow Testing Sites

Due to the increasing number of students that require test accommodations, the Office of Disability Services for Students (DSS) will offer overflow testing sites for the spring exam week, April 22-25. 

The DSS office overflow testing location will be available in 2020 Fetzer Center for up to 20 students requiring extended testing time accommodations only during the following times during the week of April 22:

            Monday through Thursday:  8 a.m., 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The primary testing location for students should be within the department with a test proctor or monitor.  The DSS office provides testing accommodation services with a reader/scribe and adaptive technology by appointment during the following office hours:

            Mondays through Thursdays:  8 a.m.; 11 a.m.; 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
            Fridays:  8 a.m.; 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The DSS office and overflow testing locations are not able to accommodate walk-in testing services.  Please work with students to schedule a testing time in advance of the exam week.  Please plan to deliver all exam materials to the DSS office on the main floor of Woodlawn Place 24 hours in advance of the scheduled exam date.  Exams may also be faxed to the DSS office (387-0633), or sent via email to DSS-Exams@wmich.edu .

Instructors should specify the materials students are allowed to use in the testing room.  Students are not permitted to take materials into the testing room that are not documented by the instructor.  Exams will be returned directly to the department unless instructors make prior arrangements with the DSS office.    
Please contact Jayne Fraley-Burgett with any questions at 387-2120, or via email at jayne.fraley@wmich.edu .

Spring 2013 Grading

Grading for the Spring 2013 semester is open. Grades are due no later than noon on Tuesday, April 30.   As a reminder, instructors are required to provide the date a student last attended class, when the student is receiving a grade of “E” or “X”.  If attendance information is not available, the instructor can use the last date of recorded academic activity.    It is important that the date provided be as accurate as possible since it will be used to determine student awards and refunds.

Instructors will be prompted to enter a valid date that is between the start and end date of the semester before final grades can be submitted.  In cases where the student does not come to even one class session or does not complete any work, the first day of the semester should be used.

Upcoming Dates:

  • Monday, March 18—Last day to withdraw from Spring courses
  • April 22-26—Final Exam week
  • Saturday, April 27—Commencement
  • Tuesday,  April 30--Spring grades due at noon
