Exam Accommodations/Proctoring

Proctoring for make-up exams: 

Make-up examinations are offered as a courtesy to faculty and students at Kent State University. Students must have faculty permission to make up an exam. Professors' policies differ regarding makeup exams, so be sure to read your syllabus and speak with your professor about your arrangements prior to taking a test. Call 330-675-8802 for make-up exam dates and times.
