Stay in Touch

While our staff may not be in the office, we are still here to support you. Reach out with any questions or concerns.

  • If you are finding the transition to online learning difficult with accommodations, tell us what works and what doesn't. What can we do to make things better for you?
  • Has something worked for you that maybe surprised you, and you would like to tell other students? Email us and we can share it (with credit or anonymously). 

Testing Reminders

  • If you receive extended time for testing, an instructor will be able to extend your time individually in whatever testing system they are using (UBLearns, Examsoft, Etc.)
  • You do not need to take tests in the testing center, therefore you don't need to schedule appointments.
  • You should provide your instructors with a digital memo, and contact them prior to the exam to remind them about extended time. If you have any additional questions about testing, please contact AR directly.

Tutoring & Academic Support Service Reminders

  • To learn more about how COVID-19 has impacted Tutoring & Academic Support Services for the Spring 2020 semester or to make an appointment for academic coaching, contact Tutoring & Academic Support Services
