Extended Time (Unlimited with Scribe or Assistance)
Some students with disabilities require unlimited time in order to demonstrate their knowledge or performance level. Unlimited time is provided by the faculty in collaboration with the disability support services office. Unlimited time is given in situations where a student is unable to control the pace of taking the examination, such as when the student relies on assistance from a scribe or reader to take the exam.
