Testing Center Information for Students

SPring 2020 update: Test Accommodations in an online learning environment

The Testing Center will not be able to proctor exams while the University’s instruction remains online only.  During this time, students will not use AIM to schedule exams. Please communicate with your instructors to discuss your exam accommodations in their courses. If your instructor is creating online timed exams, please notify your instructor if you will need extended time.  Academic departments are responsible for setting up extended testing time for online exams. Please contact DSS (disabilitysupport@mines.edu or testingcenter@mines.edu) with questions.  

Test Accommodations

While entitled to test accommodations, students may or may not choose to request such accommodations.

It is the responsibility of both the student and the faculty member to collaboratively discuss and confirm examination plans. Students are encouraged to proactively communicate with their faculty member(s). This should happen at least one week before the exam. 

Students need to access the AIM Portal to establish their accommodations and request exam times

Requesting an Exam in the Mines Testing Center

If a student would like to take an exam in the Testing Center, it is the student’s responsibility to request such accommodations via the AIM Portal
