Disability Support Services
Students with a documented disability must register with the Office of Academic Services each semester to receive academic accommodations. Please call 401-865-2494 to make an appointment with Jennifer Rivera, Assistant Director of Disability Support Services.
Testing Accommodations Request Form Use this form to request to take an exam in the Office of Academic Services if you are already registered with a document disability and receive testing accommodations.
Students who miss exams for “serious and verifiable” reasons, as defined by College policy, may be
eligible to make up those exams in the Office of Academic Services (OAS). These students must first
make every reasonable effort to coordinate makeups with their professors. If a mutually convenient
make‐up time cannot be arranged, and if the professor’s own policy permits, students may request a
make‐up time in the OAS. Click here for details.
