Testing for Instructors

To use testing accommodations, your student should provide you with a Letter of Accommodation and a complete Student Testing Agreement Request (STAR) form. The STAR form alone does NOT constitute proof of registration with DS. The STAR form will be sent to your Columbus State email address as a pdf via email from the Disability Services Testing Desk. The student may email or present you with a paper copy of their Letter of Accommodation.


How to submit a test to Disability Services

All tests must be submitted 2 business days prior to the test availability date. To submit a test, please fill out the mandatory Disability Services Test Administration Request Form (.DOCX). One form must be filled out for each student. You may then drop it off in person to Eibling hall 101 or email it to

Don’t Forget!

  • Include a 'deadline date' on Test Administration Request Form.
  • Indicate (and describe as necessary) any instructor/class permitted materials on the Test Administration Request Form.
  • Select your preferred pick-up method (Mailroom Delivery or Faculty pick up).
  • Include a campus address (building name and room number).
  • Use the 'Special Instructions/Comments' section of the Test Administration Request Form as necessary.
  • A BlackBoard Testing Information Sheet is also required for tests to be taken in BlackBoard.  Access to the BlackBoard Information sheet can be found on College Testing Services' website.

Test denial forms

You may receive a test denial form from one of your students. This can occur for a variety of reasons. Common reasons include the student arriving too late for their appointment, or the instructor failing to submit the test at least two business days before the testing date.

Test Extensions

You may need to contact the Disability Services Testing Center to extend the deadline of the exam. To do so, you may call the direct line at 614-287-5089 or email with your request.  Please remember to include the student name, class name, and test name when extending deadlines.
