Testing for Students with Disabilities 

The Assessment Center at Lake Washington Institute of Technology offers accommodated testing for students with disabilities.

Accommodated Testing Scheduling

If you would like to request for disability accommodations for testing please contact the Disabilities Support Services office. The required lead time for requests to be processed varies depending on the type of test.

  • Guided Self Placement & TEAS: 1-2 weeks in advance of planned test date
  • GED®: minimum of 6 weeks in advance of first planned test date
  • CLEP: 2-4 weeks in advance of planned test date

After your accommodations are approved, you will need to contact the Assessment Center to make a testing appointment. Accommodated testing appointments are usually offered on the first Friday of each month. Depending on the type of accommodations needed, an appointment may be necessary for the Guided Self Placement test. If so, a DSS coordinator will arrange this with the Assessment Center.
