Makeup Exam Requests

Prior to submitting your makeup exam request, please review the college’s policy for making up exams. 

Please note that qualifying absences for makeup exams include those related to NCAA athletic competitions, observance of a significant religious holiday, illness, severe medical or psychological issues, personal emergencies, and debate competitions. For absences that fall outside of these categories, arrangements must be made directly between the student and instructor to make up the exam. All students who need to makeup an exam due to illness must receive clearance from Bates Health Services prior to submitting your makeup exam request.

While we make every effort to proctor as scheduled there may be unforeseen circumstances that require tests to be rescheduled unexpectedly (inclement weather, emergencies). Should this occur and a substitute proctor is unavailable, Accessible Education will contact by email all students scheduled to test that day and their faculty as soon as possible to let them know of the change and how to reschedule for the next available date.
