Testing Accommodations

Some students with disabilities are eligible for testing accommodations. These students may take their exams at CDAR Testing Services. Accommodations may vary for each individual depending on the nature of the disability and the documentation provided to CDAR.

If you have an exam accommodation which involves additional time, it will not apply to take-home or online exams which have durations of 24-hours or more. Student’s in need of additional support to access material in an online setting (screen reader, etc.), please reach out to cdar@uidaho.edu as soon as possible for assistance in how to use built-in accessibility features or pair software with the programs used during exams.

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.
