(NOTE:  For students attending classes at UNT-Frisco and CHEC locations, please follow the Process for Receiving Academic Accommodations at UNT-Frisco and CHEC Locations)

Testing in the ODA Test Center

To use ODA testing facilities, a student must be registered with ODA, requested letters of accommodations for the current semester, and have approved test accommodations.  Whenever possible, students should arrange testing accommodations with the instructor early in the semester. If the instructor is not able to provide a testing space and the student's testing accommodations, then the instructor must login to the AIM Instructor Portal and complete an Alternative Testing Agreement (ATA) so that the student may schedule an exam in the ODA Test Center. Upon the instructor's submission of the ATA, the student will login to the AIM Student Portal and submit an ODA Test Request to schedule their exam.  Failure to follow ODA policies and procedures may result in a delay or denial of proctoring services through the ODA Test Center.

Exam Day Procedures

Due to lack of space, studying in the ODA waiting area is not permitted. There are study spaces located in Sage Hall and the Union. 

Small lockers are available within the ODA Test Center to store personal belongings not allowed in the testing rooms. 

Student are responsible to do the following:

  • Arrive on time for your exam appointment. Exams begin at your scheduled appointment time, whether you have arrived or not. The ODA will not administer the exam/quiz for any student arriving more than 15 minutes late for the scheduled exam/quiz. 
  • Bring your UNT student ID. A picture ID is REQUIRED and you will not be allowed to test without one.
  • Bring any necessary testing materials as directed by your instructor (i.e. scantron, pencil, bluebook, calculator, etc..).
  • Review the ODA Test Center Information on the ODA website & abide by the University's Academic Integrity Policy.
  • No books, papers, notes, backpacks, hats, hoods, caps, purses, smart watches, cell phones, tablets, or any other electronic devices will be allowed in the testing rooms. Exceptions include medical devices, devices that are part of an approved accommodation, or materials specified by the instructor.
  • If you are approved for food you must exit the testing room and consume your food in the main testing office/lobby. Please note, your testing time does not stop. Clear liquids in clear containers will be allowed in the testing room. All labels must be removed from bottles and containers prior to entering the testing room.
  • Students must remain within the assigned testing room during exams. Students may leave to use the restroom only once during a test administration period, unless student has an accommodation. Students are not permitted to exit the building during an examination and will be considered a violation of the University's Academic Integrity Policy and will be reported to your instructor.
  • If a restroom break is necessary, the proctor will retain the test materials. Student will be required to sign out when leaving and sign in upon returning to the test. Also the proctor may escort student to and from the restroom to ensure test integrity.
  • Scratch paper will not be allowed unless the instructor indicates it is in his/her instructions.  Any scratch paper given to the student for the exam will be returned with the exam.
  • Children are not permitted to wait in the ODA for students taking exams unless they are accompanied by an adult.  No visitors, phone calls, or interruptions will be permitted during a student's test administration.
  • Any testing aids that are not accommodation-related (such as use of textbooks, notes, calculators, tables, dictionaries, etc.) require written approval from the instructor in advance.
  • If a student is over 10 minutes late or misses a scheduled testing time (illness, childcare, transportation, etc.), it will require professor approval before it may be rescheduled in the ODA Test Center.  It will be the student's responsibility to contact the instructor about rescheduling the exam. It is the instructor's responsibility to approve or deny rescheduling the student's test and inform the ODA Test Center of their decision.  Test Center staff will still require five business days' notice to reschedule tests in the test center.
  • MISCONDUCT: Cameras and proctor walk-ins are utilized during testing. If a student is suspected of academic dishonesty (cheating), a report will be written and sent to the professor, the ODA director, and the Dean of Students.  A copy of the report will also be placed in the student's file. The instructor will determine further actions to be taken. Academic dishonesty is a violation of the student code of conduct and may lead to suspension or expulsion from the university http://www.unt.edu/csrr/student conduct/index.html.
