Accessibility Accommodations for Examinees with Documented Disabilities
Testing accommodations are provided for examinees with documented disabilities in accordance with the ADA. To receive accommodations, you must meet with the SFCC Office of Accessibility Services (505-428-1711) for a standard intake interview and to have your documentation reviewed. The Testing Center and Elsevier will not provide non-standard testing arrangements without a referral from the SFCC Office of Accessibility Services. It may take several weeks to get the proper documentation processed. Elsevier requires at least 2 weeks prior to the exam date to modify the exam to meet the student’s accommodation requirements.
For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please note that if you are testing at SFCC but intend to attend another college’s nursing program you must check with that school to see how much time they require between testing attempts. SFCC’s requirement is 28 days, but some schools have significantly longer times required between attempts.
