Testing Accommodations

Students with approved testing accommodations may take exams at CDAR Testing Services. Exams taken with CDAR Testing Services must be scheduled at least 7 days prior to the exam date. Fall 22 Finals Deadline: 11/18/2022. Spring 23 Finals Deadline: 04/14/2023. Scheduling requests should be submitted through the CDAR Access Portal - see Exam Scheduling page. Exam accommodations are assigned individually to each student based on the specific barriers in a course. To discuss adjusting testing accommodations call 208-885-6307 or email to schedule an appointment with your access consultant.

Students are encouraged to confirm with instructors that time extensions and any other accommodations have been applied in Canvas. Due to space constraints, CDAR Testing Services does not generally schedule online exams at our space in the Pitman Center unless there is a specific need. Students needing a location to take an online exam should call 208-885-6307 or email for assistance.

Extended time on exams accommodations do not apply to exams with a submission period of 24 hours or more - typically called a take-home exam. Students encountering barriers related to take-home exams should call 208-885-6307 or email to schedule a meeting with their access consultant.

Students using assistive technology on exams are encouraged to schedule a meeting with the Assistive Technology Specialist to review student need and ensure everything goes smoothly on exam day. CDAR Testing Services works with instructors and the Assistive Technology Specialist to provide accessible exam materials compatible with most assistive technology. Students needing alternative formats for online or take-home exams should email

Students must abide by Article II, Sections 1 through 4 of the University Of Idaho Student Code Of Conduct.

  • Cheating on classroom or outside assignments, examinations or tests is a violation of this code.
  • Plagiarism, falsification of academic records and the acquisition or use of test materials without faculty authorization are considered forms of academic dishonesty and, as such, are violations of this code.
  • Because academic honesty and integrity are core values at a university, the faculty finds that even one incident of academic dishonesty seriously and critically endangers the essential operation of the university and may merit expulsion. [rev. 7-98]
  • The operation of U of I requires the accuracy and protection of its records and documents. To use, make, forge, print, reproduce, copy, alter, remove, or destroy any record, document, or identification used or maintained by U of I violates this code when done with intent to defraud or misinform.
