Accommodation Testing for DCCC Students
Students wanting consideration for accommodation testing should contact the Coordinator, Disability Services. Students cannot test with accommodations unless an approved accommodation plan from the Coordinator, Disability Services is on file in the Testing Center.  

Reader and Scribe requests require one week’s notice. Students will need to provide three potential appointment times to the Learning Commons Welcome Desk either in-person or by calling 336-249-8186, ext. 6787. Once a reader/scribe is arranged, a Learning Commons staff member will contact the student to confirm the testing time. Please note, accommodation testing for placement and WorkKeys will not be allowed during curriculum midterms and finals due to higher volume of curriculum accommodation testers.
