Disability Services

Illinois Wesleyan University is committed to providing equal access and opportunity to all campus programs and activities for students with disabilities. Determination of eligibility for support services, academic accommodations and auxiliary aids is based on documentation received from appropriate medical, educational, and psychological sources. Disability Services secures and maintains documentation of disabilities, determines reasonable accommodations, and works with the student, faculty, and staff to develop plans for providing such accommodations. Self-advocacy is highly encouraged for students with disabilities as they progress through their collegiate experience.

Exam Proctoring

The Academic Advising Center has space and proctoring staff available for students requiring extended time or a reduced-distraction environment when taking exams based on eligible accommodations under the American Disabilities Act (ADA, 1990).  The student is responsible for working with his/her professor to have the Exam Proctoring Form completed. We request the submission of this form to the Academic Advising Center (via email, fax or campus mail) at least 48 hours before the exam is to be proctored.
