How to Apply for Test Proctoring
Requesting Proctoring Services for the First Time:
New students must first register with the OSD and be approved for proctoring accommodations before making a service request. Once approved, the student needs to go in person to the Proctoring Center in A242 Murphy Hall to request test-taking arrangements. It is important to note that 10 working days are required to make arrangements for an exam. However, if the student was approved for services after the quarter started, or if the disability is the result of a recent accident then the OSD will work with the student and the Professor to make the arrangements. The student must request services for each new quarter.
Students Who Have Been Receiving Proctoring Services
During the first two weeks of each quarter, continuing students must request Proctoring/Test-Taking accommodations in person in the OSD Proctoring Center in A242 Murphy Hall. Students are asked to fill out the exam request form during the first two weeks of every quarter. Below are the request schedules:
2013 Winter Quarter - Come to the Proctoring Center Week 1 or Week 2. The hours are:

Tuesday January 15th through Friday January 18th - 7:00 am to 4:00 pm
After Friday of Week 2, new requests or changes to a request may impact OSD's ability to schedule exams or make arrangements with faculty. Even if some test dates have not been announced in class, students need to have arranged for their exam accommodations early. Students are asked to inform us immediately if they have dropped a class or they are unable to come to an exam. Ten (10) working days are required for a student to make changes to his/her exam schedule. Starting Week 3, appointment times will be made for those requesting late for Test-Taking accommodations.

How to Resolve Service Delivery Problems
It is fair to say that even with the best efforts of everyone involved with your service delivery at UCLA, a problem
may occur. If this should happen, we strongly encourage you to let us know so that we can work together to solve the
problem as quickly as possible. Experience has shown us that many times a problem arises because of a
misunderstanding or miscommunication; therefore, clarification can be a quick and effective solution. We can help to
resolve problems you may have with your service providers, professors, TA's or Departments. It is often best to
discuss the issue with the person involved first, and if a satisfactory resolution cannot be reached, to then appeal
to the person's supervisor or department chair. However, we can assist you with making this determination and should
we be unable to resolve the problem in the OSD, we will refer you to appropriate on-campus resources that can help.
For any issue or problem, you will be treated with respect, receive a timely response to your inquiries, and will
have your issues dealt with in a confidential manner (if so requested). Retaliation in any form against persons who
file complaints is prohibited by disability-related law and University policy. We encourage you to bring up any
issues or problems as soon as possible, give clear and detailed information and be respectful of those people with
whom you are working.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires the University to adopt and publish procedures to resolve
problems regarding access to the educational program for persons with disabilities. An individual who believes he or
she has been discriminated against on the basis of disability should contact UCLA ADA/504 Compliance Officer, Monroe
Gorden at (310) 825-1514, or via email at email@example.com. If
you wish to know more about your rights as a disabled person under Federal and State law and University policy, OSD
can refer you to the appropriate entity.
