  • OARS will send one electronic confirmation two (2) days before the scheduled exam. A second reminder will be sent one day before the scheduled day of the exam.
  • Paper exams should be in our office by 5:00 pm the day before.  Students will be notified two hours (2) in advance to arrive at your classroom to take their exam if we have not received the exam.  
  • Exams will remain in the office due to integrity and security issues. You may come to OARS to pick up the exam between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. OARS will always scan and send exams to UNCG professor emails.

OARS believes these guidelines will benefit both our students and instructors in terms of the process becoming more efficient and safe for everyone involved. Our hope is to ensure our students have the necessary accommodations to ensure equitable access in collaboration with all of us.

UNCG PhotoVoice

2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, which provides protections against discrimination of people with disabilities. Over the last 30 years, there have been real gains in access, but we still have a long way to go! In celebration of the 30th anniversary, OARS has decided to showcase a virtual PhotoVoice project for our students, staff, and faculty who identify as a person with a disability. This project is a collection of photos/drawings, including an explanation of how life is on campus through the lens of a person with a disability.
