• Special Accommodation Testing Procedures     
    4/14/20 - Due to COVID-19 our testing centers are closed.   We will post and let you know when we re-open.   We appreciate your understanding and patience during this time.      

    Students must first submit their documentation to our Disability Services Coordinator by going to the following website:  http://www.coastalbend.edu/specialneeds.  Students who have documented approval for special testing accommodations are required to arrange testing appointments by contacting the Testing Center at their respective campus.  Appointments need to be made at least seven (7) business days in advance of when the exam is to be taken so that testing facilities and staff can be reserved.  We do not accept walk-ins.  


      NEW - Use our on-line scheduling site - click here to make your appointments -  be aware that the instructor must have already submitted your exam information and a signed copy of your accommodation approval form - before the reservation can be guaranteed.
