Accommodated Testing: Students

The Disability Resource Center is dedicated to providing resources to you for inclusive and accessible testing. If you are unable to test in the classroom or at home you can schedule in-person testing with our office through our G-ATR Testing Portal. Our office will facilitate the exam according to the instructions provided by the course instructor(s).

As best practice, you should always submit your accommodation letter at the beginning of the semester. You are also encouraged to follow up with your instructors to discuss your accommodations.

If you are not approved for testing accommodations, please see our Get Started with the DRC page for more information.

Using the new G-ATR portal

The Gator-Accommodated Test Request (G-ATR) portal is our new testing portal designed to assist you in submitting your Accommodated Test Request (ATR) and reserving a space at the Disability Resource Center for your upcoming exams. This process begins with you submitting your accommodation letter to your instructor and informing them that you would like to take your exams at the DRC. If there are no instructions regarding the exam submitted into the portal by your instructor, you will not be able to submit your request to reserve a space in the testing office.

When using G-ATR, you can:

  • Create an Accommodated Test Request (ATR) to reserve a space to test at the DRC
  • View or cancel an existing ATR
  • Use the upcoming tests calendar to manage your tests
  • Use the email notifications feature to communicate with the DRC or your instructor about an ATR

The University of Florida and the Disability Resource Center has a zero-tolerance policy for cheating.

Each testing room is monitored by Closed Circuit surveillance cameras. If a student is seen with unauthorized materials or devices on the surveillance cameras, we will take note of the incident and provide your instructor with a detailed incident report. The consequences of academic dishonesty are left up to the instructor.

Students with in-person courses or paper-based exams who cannot receive their accommodations in their typical learning environment are able to schedule an in-person exam at the DRC through the G-ATR Testing Portal. Any student with testing accommodations that needs a space for online exams can reserve a testing space at the DRC, Reitz Union, or UF Libraries.

If you plan to test at the Disability Resource Center, please see the below reminders:

  •  You must submit your accommodation letter to your instructor(s)
  • Communicate with your instructor that you plan to test at the DRC – the instructor will need to provide “test” instructions in the G-ATR Testing Portal
  •  The G-ATR Testing Portal should only be used when scheduling to test in person in our office.
  • You will receive an automatic confirmation email from the G-ATR portal to your UFL email address.
  • Submit your accommodated test request (ATR) at least four business days in advance of the exam. This does not include the day of the exam, weekends, or holidays.
  • Arrive on time with your Gator 1 ID card or government-issued ID
  • Cypress Hall is a residence hall and for the safety and security of residents, the doors will be locked before 8 a.m. and after 5 p.m. If you have an exam scheduled before or after the stated hours, please call 352-846-6321 to gain access to the DRC.
