Students: Reserve your Exam with the TAC

Column 1





Students should reserve their seat once they are notified that the TAC is confirmed as the location for the assessment. Students need to reserve their seat at least 48 hours* before their exam in order to test at the TAC. Failure to do so will result in an error. *Please note we are not open on the weekends; reservation requests made after 5pm on Friday for Monday exams will likely not be approved.

When an instructor is utilizing the TAC to provide accommodated exams, students who do not reserve a seat prior to the 48 hour mark are expected to take the exam with the class without accommodations.  

Seats are limited so we recommend scheduling early in order to reserve preferred times/locations. 

After viewing this guide, if you have any questions about the process of reserving a seat with the TAC or run into any difficulties, then please contact TAC staff by email ([email protected]) or phone (734-763-1334) and we would be happy to assist you. 

Please be sure to communicate with your instructor about accommodated testing plans for the course, and exam details, as much as possible.

Below, you will find a list of step-by-step instructions on how to reserve a seat with the TAC:

1) Once you log-in to Accommodate, select the option “Schedule Exam with TAC” from the left-hand side of the page.

If you do not have this option, this is likely because you have not yet connected with the SSD office or completed the process of submitting your semester request for accommodation letters
