Make Up Tests

Most DU campus libraries offer Make Up Testing services for students and faculty. If a student misses a scheduled test in class, the Instructor may allow the student to take or re-take the test with a proctor present. The student must make every effort to avoid missing class-time tests. The make-up testing service is not to be used casually and must be used judiciously by the instructor where the student's circumstances merit it.

Instructor Information:

Due to the high number of requests for testing appointments for ADA accommodation and Make Up testing, Course Instructors are asked to do the following:

        1.     Submit all tests to the testing center at least one week prior to the deadline for student completion.

Student Registration:

Make Up and ADA accommodation testing is by appointment. Walk-in appointments will only be accommodated as seat and time availability permits.
