REQUESTING ACCOMMODATIONS FOR THE ONLINE MATH PLACEMENT TEST
Without accommodations, students are allowed a calculator and 45 minutes to complete the test.
To request accommodations for the online math placement test:
- submit the request form that appears below
- complete Steps 1 and 2 of the ASAC’s three-step registration process
Step 1: Submit documentation of your disability
Step 2: Submit the Student Accommodations Questionnaire (SAQ) (for additional information about the three-step process, to fill out the SAQ and submit documentation, go to http://www.american.edu/ocl/asac/disability)
After your request form, SAQ, and documentation have been reviewed, you will be notified at your AU email address of the status of your math placement test accommodations request and be given further instructions. This process could take up to two weeks.
The online test can only be taken once. Wait until you receive an email from the Academic Support and Access Center (asac) regarding your accommodations request before taking the test.
Receiving accommodations for the online math placement test does not mean that you are eligible to receive accommodations in your classes. The request for accommodations in your classes must be made by completing Step 3 of the ASAC registration process – meeting with an ASAC counselor. If necessary, the ASAC counselor may request additional documentation in support of your request. Complete information on the three-step process for registering with the ASAC can be found at http://www.american.edu/ocl/asac/For-Students-Eligibility.cfm
