Instructions to Receive Exam Accommodations

Step 1

Register with the UNB Student Accessibility Centre (SAC):

Contact the UNB Student Accessibility Centre at unbsac@unb.ca, to have your Accommodation Letter prepared. Your Instructor(s) will be notified of your specific accommodations.

Accommodation letters will only be provided if you can supply one of the following forms of supporting documentation:

  • Medical documentation for a disability.
    Please check this list of approved medical documents.
  • A current/valid Accommodation Letter from your home institution.
    This letter must be on your school’s official letterhead and include a point of contact.

Step 2

Communicate with your instructor(s):

Once you have registered with the SAC, you should reach out to your instructor(s) to confirm that they have received your Accommodation Letter, and that your accommodations have been made. For example:

  • If you require extra time for online quizzes and exams (to ensure that the time has been adjusted accordingly).
  • If you require a paper exam (your instructor may need to create this.

Step 3

Booking your exam:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no current requirement for students to use in-person invigilation services to complete their UNB Open-Entry online exams. Course Instructors have alternative methods in place for exam facilitation for students to complete their exams at home. If and when this process changes, you will be advised on what the process will be and informed on how to proceed.

When you are ready to complete your exam(s) (midterm/final) and are unsure on how to proceed, please contact your Instructor.

Should you have any other questions, please email exams@unb.ca.

**Please be aware**

The UNB Online Team and the Student Accessibility Centre (SAC) require time to process accommodations. If you require exam accommodations, ensure you do the above steps as soon as possible.
