Standardized Testing Accommodations (WST, ELM, etc.)

Accessible Standardized Testing accommodations for tests such as the Entry Level Math exam (ELM), English Placement Test (EPT), and WST (Writing Skills Test) are provided by the University Testing Office after receiving notification of accommodations from Accessibility Services. Below are the steps to take in order to request testing accommodations for such tests along with more detailed information below.

This can be done by visiting Testing Office or by calling (510) 885-3662 to register for the test by the published deadline.
Immediately after registering for the test, contact Accessibility Services to submit an Accessible Standardized Testing Request and schedule a phone or in-person appointment with a counselor to discuss your accommodation needs. If you already receive testing accommodations through our office, only submitting the testing request is necessary. Please refer to the Testing Office's website for information regarding request deadlines.
Tests for students with accommodations will be given on an alternate date and time. The Testing Office will email your Admission Ticket on the Friday before your scheduled test with the actual date, time and location. If you do not receive an admission ticket from the Testing Office one week prior to the published exam date, please contact them immediately.
Per Testing Office policy, if you are more than 15 minutes late to your test, you will have that time subtracted from your total accommodated time or lose your testing opportunity.
The Accessible Standardized Testing Request is valid only for the test and date specified on the form. If you take another test with the Testing Office in the future, you will need to complete a new Accessible Standardized Testing Request.
