Accommodated Testing

Questions?

For additional questions/concerns regarding accommodated testing, please contact the Accommodated Test Coordinator Robin Paulson at 303.556.3300.

How do I receive Testing Accommodations at CCD?

  1. Set up an intake appointment with an accessibility specialist in person or by phone (303.556.3300) at the Accessibility Center in Confluence Building, room, 121. The accessibility specialist will collaborate with you to determine what accommodations will provide equal access to your courses and tests.
  2. Metro State students must also set up an appointment with CCD's Accessibility Center. If you have an accommodation letter from the Access Center, please bring this letter and any documentation to your CCD intake appointment to expedite the process.

Do I need Documentation?

During the intake appointment the accessibility specialist will evaluate what documentation is required to finalize the accommodation request. While you do not have to bring a copy of your documentation to the intake appointment, if you can obtain a copy before your appointment this can help to ensure we are providing the appropriate accommodations for equal access.

Can I receive Accommodations for the CCPT?

 You can receive accommodations for the CCPT by following the same steps to receive CCD Testing Accommodations.
