Accommodated Testing

Foothill College offers reasonable test accommodations to our students with documented disabilities. Students must first register with the Foothill Disability Resource Center (DRC) and also meet with a DRC specialist to determine eligibility. Eligibility for accommodations is based upon the nature of the disability and the course curriculum.

New students should contact the DRC or visit DRC New Student resource page for more information.

Accommodations may include, but are not limited to the following: readers, scribes, alternate formats, oral examinations for essay tests, extended time, permission to write on an exam instead of a scantron, or a low distraction environment.
