Our Services

Here are some of the services provided by the DSPS Testing and Tutorial Center. Below this list, you can view our online tutoring schedule.

Test Proctoring Services

Accommodation for classroom testing provides an equal opportunity for students with verified disabilities to demonstrate mastery of the course objectives and take required course exams or evaluative assignments. 

If you have already met with your DSS Counselor or LD Specialist for the current quarter you can stop by our office to set up your testing accommodations.  

*Accommodated Testing

Due to COVID-19 and the college’s direction towards a virtual campus we will not offer any face to face testing. We have asked your instructors to please be flexible and build extra time accommodations into their virtual/online quizzes, exams and finals.

Please refer to your accommodation letter to verify your accommodations. If there are any accommodations you need help accessing virtually please contact dsstestproctor@fhda.edu for support. It is possible that your instructor is not yet aware of this new policy, if so, please let them know to contact us with any questions they may have.

If you you are a student or Faculty who needs support or has questions regarding accommodations through Canvas, Zoom, etc., please email dsstestproctor@fhda.edu
