Only students who have been approved for testing accommodations through the Pitt-Johnstown Office of Health and Counseling Services (OHCS) are entitled to use these accommodations.
To schedule an exam, the student must complete a testing request form, which is located on the counter inside the Office of Health and Counseling Services (OHCS).
Students are required to complete this form and have their instructor sign it. The instructor keeps the top, white copy, and the remainder of the form is given back to the student.
Once the instructor has signed the request form, the student is responsible for submitting the remainder of the request form to OHCS at least three business days prior to the class test time.
Note: Please make note of college closures due to holidays, etc.
The following chart outlines when exams must be received by the Office of Health and Counseling Services (OHCS) in order to provide accommodated testing:
For Exams Scheduled On… Test Request Must Be Received By…
Monday The previous Wednesday
Tuesday The previous Thursday
Wednesday The previous Friday
Thursday The Monday prior
Friday The Tuesday prior
Failure to submit a testing request form within 3 days of the class test date will result in the inability to take the exam in the testing center.
Students who do not comply with these rules will be asked to leave the testing center and forfeit their ability to take the exam.
Students are responsible for notifying their instructor as well as the Office of Health and Counseling Services (OHCS) if an exam is to be missed for any reason. It is up to the discretion of the instructor whether or not they will allow the student to make up the exam. In the event that the instructor allows the student to make up the exam, the student must complete another testing request form and submit it to the OHCS three days prior to the makeup exam date.
Instructors are required to provide the Office of Health and Counseling Services (OHCS) a copy of the exam prior to the student’s test date and time.
The following options are available for exam delivery:
On the testing request form, the instructor will indicate how they would like to have the completed exam returned to them but, hand delivering it to the instructor, their secretary, or dropping it off in their mailbox is the preferred method.
