Students with Disabilities
Please visit http://ualr.edu/accessibility/ to view the university’s commitment to accessibility.
If you need testing accommodations due to a documented disability, be sure to follow carefully the directions on completing request forms and providing documentation.
For national testing programs such as ACT, ACT-online, Praxis, MPRE, MAT, and LSAT, you must submit your documentation directly to the national testing company. You must also complete any forms that they require. These forms and procedures can vary considerably from test to test. All such forms and procedures are provided online and/or in the appropriate test registration bulletin.
Here are the steps to follow if you are requesting an accommodation for a UALR test.
1. Fill out a Petition for Testing Accommodations. (Email Brad Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a form)
-This can be mailed to:
Director of Testing Services
University of Arkansas at Little Rock
2801 South University Avenue
Student Services Center, room 315
Little Rock, AR 72204
Faxed to: 501-569-8096
2. Coordinate with the Disability Resource Center so that they can approve all requested accommodations. You must be on file with the Disability Resource Center before any accommodations can be approved.
Please note that requests for accommodations must be made no later than the standard test registration deadline date.
If you need what you think to be a minor accommodation and you’re not sure if you should request it in advance, please contact the Director of UALR Testing Services or the national testing program directly. Sometimes what seems like a minor accommodation is not something that can be addressed on the testing day.
Accommodations approved by national testing programs cannot be altered by staff in the testing room on the test day.
Also, testing staff do not have the authority to grant accommodations requests (even for what may seem to be minor accommodations) in the testing room on the test day. All such requests must be made to and approved by the national testing company.
Don’t hesitate to contact UALR Testing Services, the UALR Disability Resource Center, or the national testing program for assistance.
