Final Exam Week

  • We will have extended hours of 7:45am-11:00pm for the entire UW-Madison Final Exam Week.
  • Due to the volume of exams we expect to administer during final exam week every year, students with the test alone accommodation and their instructors may need to be flexible with scheduling their exams. If testing alone is not available on the date and time that the student selected, we will contact the student and instructor at least two days prior to the appointment to offer options to reschedule the student.
  • Scheduling deadlines will be strictly enforced during final exam week. Late requests submitted during final exam week will be denied, and all appointments must be scheduled at least two business days before your exam date. If you are a student and you have not received an access code for your final exam at least one week prior to your exam, please contact your instructor.
  • If you need to reschedule your exam, please note that we will provide date and time options based on current availability at the time that the reschedule request is made.

Canceling, Rescheduling or Editing Appointments and Requests

If you need to cancel, reschedule or edit an existing request or appointment, please login to the Accommodated Testing Portal (linked at the bottom of this page) and find the link next to the appointment or exam labeled 'edit request form'. This will link to a page where you can request to cancel or change an existing appointment or exam request. Please allow up to 24 hours to receive a response. We will consider all reschedule and edit requests based on current availability.

Note: Please do not use the 'edit/reschedule form' to initially schedule an appointment or to submit a late request, as such requests will not be processed or added to the schedule. If you need to schedule a new appointment before the scheduling deadline, you may do so in the accommodated testing student portal. If you need to schedule an appointment for within two business days, please call or email the testing coordinator.

Scheduling Deadlines

All appointments must be finalized a minimum of two business days in advance of the exam date. Late requests will only be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please see the chart below for our scheduling deadlines:
