ONLINE LEARNING UPDATES
Q: Is Services for Students with Disabilities still operational?
Yes, SSD is still operating virtually Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. All appointments and services will be conducted via phone or virtually until further notice. The Testing Center will be unable to proctor exams while virtual instruction is in place at The Citadel.
If you have a question or concern, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What happens now that exams are online? How do I get extended time for an online exam?
SSD will not be able to proctor exams while instruction remains online only. Please communicate with your instructors to discuss your exam accommodations in their courses. SSD is available to instructors and students to consult about unique circumstances.
- Some instructors may opt for alternative assessments (e.g. essays, untimed exams) which would not require exam accommodations.
- If your instructor is creating online timed exams, please notify your instructor if you will need extended time. Academic departments are responsible for setting up extended testing time in Blackboard.
Q: I currently have a note-taker assigned in my in-person class. Now that class is online, will I still receive a copy of the notes?
Once you have learned from your instructor on how they will adapt the course for virtual instruction, please let us know if you would like to continue receiving notes. You may find that you no longer need a note-taker due to the course design changes.
Q: With the switch to all-virtual instruction, I anticipate barriers and would like to request new accommodations. What are my next steps?
