There are several factors that can have an impact on the location of where a student with a disability will write an examination including
- approved accommodation requirements,
- resources (human, technological, professional and accessibility) at a designated invigilation site,
- potential fees associated with special invigilation,
- and a number of other considerations related to diagnosis, symptoms and treatment.
Therefore, 'location' is one of the exam accommodations Accessibility Services will discuss with students within the assessment. Students will be asked to assist by seeking information in their regions. Upon completion of the assessment, Accessibility Services will recommend one of the following options for the student to write:
- at a designated Athabasca University invigilation site;
- at a designated AU post-secondary invigilation site, but in the Office of Services to Students with Disabilities;
- at an alternative site that has been identified and subsequently approved by the AU Office of the Registrar;
- at home with a volunteer or paid invigilator who has been identified and subsequently approved by the AU Office of the Registrar.
Please note: students are responsible for all fees or payments associated with examinations.
