SSD Accommodation Notification

Each student registered with the Services for Students with Disabilities Office will receive a Disability Accommodation Verification Card. Students are responsible for providing this card to each instructor. Instructors are encouraged to make a copy of the SSD Card for their records. Instructors who teach Internet courses will receive an email from the SSD Office confirming student accommodations. Accommodations are active once the student has met with and shown their SSD Card to their instructor. Accommodations are not retroactive.  If you need further assistance, please call the SSD office at 260-481-6657.

SSD Exams

Students are required to request exams be sent to the SSD Office in Walb Union, room 113 or that online exam times be extended at least three days prior to exam date.

If exams need to be audio recorded or converted to braille the instructor may submit the exam to the SSD Office at least five days prior to the exam date. If student's accommodation requires enlarged font, please enlarge the font of the exam before sending to the SSD Office.

Students are to schedule their exam time with the SSD Office. Exams should be taken at the same time as the class, unless their class schedule does not permit. We are open for exams Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m.

Transmittal Form Instructors please submit a Transmittal Form for each individual exam. Multiple students taking the same exam may be placed on the same Transmittal Form. This provides the SSD Office the instructions needed to proctor the exam correctly.

Exams and/or questions may be emailed to our secure email: ssdexam@ipfw.edu

Leniency on Attendance and Assignment Deadlines Instructors please review the Leniency Form Link and contact our office 260-481-6657 with additional questions or concerns.
