Re: Accessibility Services Testing Center Closure to COVID-19
Update about COVID-19 and its impact on our daily services to students
Hood College remains concerned about your well-being during this highly stressful time as we all confront the daily challenges associated with COVID-19. The Office of Accessibility Services testing center will be remain closed for in person testing, however we will still offer support for all accommodated exams moving forward. This memorandum will replace the CAAR testing center website and no testing center requests will be taken at the moment. While all undergraduate and graduate classes will be moved online Monday, March 23, 2020 it will be communicated to all faculty that accommodations should still be implemented using whatever assessment methods are being used. If you have questions about your academic accommodation plan you can contact Kate Gmuer at firstname.lastname@example.org. For testing center questions or concerns, please email ASTesting@hood.edu or myself directly.
The Office of Student Success are an important resources for you during this time. Please look forward to communication from Lisa Copenhaver, Director of Student Success about online tutoring services. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to someone from the staff of Academic Services.
Please look forward to additional communication once online classes start.
