The Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS) department at Miramar College authorizes appropriate academic accommodations, including Test Proctoring, after thorough review of disability documentation and an extensive interactive process between the student and the DSPS Counselor.
Our Test Proctoring Center provides a distraction reduced environment for students to take their exams. We provide students with disabilities equal access to their testing ability and assist students in accommodating their functional limitations.
The Test Proctoring Center is located in L-103 on the first floor of the LLRC building.

DSPS Student Expectations & Responsibilities

- One week or more before the test you will complete the Test Accommodation Reservation Form (TARF). We cannot guarantee a proctor if you submit the form late.
- If the form is not completely filled out and signed by the instructor, the testing appointment cannot be confirmed. It is the students responsibility to ensure the professor fills out the form completely.
- If the Test Proctor observes cheating, the test will be stopped immediately. Your instructor will be contacted. DSPS may suspend your use of test accommodation.
- Testing appointments will not be changed or rescheduled unless approved by the instructor. The instructor must directly email or call the DSPS office.
