If you do not receive an email with an exam schedule for your class(es) within 3-5 days after the student has requested Faculty Notification Letters, it is the student's responsibility to follow up with the instructor and DSC to schedule exams.

  • This accommodation is for registered DSC students who are eligible to receive testing accommodations using DSC facilities.
