Testing Center

The ESDS Testing Center provides a reliable space for UMB students who receive testing accommodations to take exams. 

UMB students at Shady Grove, please schedule your testing accommodations here.


To request a time to take your exam in the testing center at UMB, you must complete the following steps:

1.  Request academic accommodations with the ESDS office each semester.

2.  Work with the instructor to determine a reasonable time period to take your accommodated exam or quiz.

3.  Complete the following form to schedule a spot within the Testing Center within five business days of the desired testing date to allow the ESDS office to coordinate with instructors. Make sure to provide your instructor's correct email address. Please note: exam reservations scheduled with 48 hours' notice or less may not be honored due to constraints of last-minute scheduling.

4.  Wait to receive an email from ESDS confirming the date and time of your exam.
