Accommodations for Placement Testing

Students who, due to a documented disability, need special equipment, extended time, or tests taken in a separate room for placement testing, orientation, or for academic classes—must contact Adaptive Educational Services (AES) at (317) 274-3241 located in Joseph T. Taylor Hall (UC) Suite 100. Since registering with AES and providing them with documentation and arranging services takes time, students should notify AES as soon as possible before classes start and before or at the time they need to schedule placement tests.
