Testing accommodations, such as extended time, quiet room, and use of the computer assisted technology lab, are provided for all registered SARC students. The SARC has strict guidelines that need to be followed in order to schedule exam accommodations.

SARC registered students who have a note-taking accommodation on file may utilize recording devices, note-taker applications or request a classroom note- taker. The student is responsible for working in partnership with Potential Classmates, Course Instructors and the SARC to secure a classroom note-taker. Please email sarc.notetaking@wku with any questions about the note-taker accommodation.

Refer to the Note-Taking Services Page for more information.

Captioning sometimes referred to as “speech-to-text”, provides a critical link to communicating aural information as it is happening for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. Also, Sign Language Interpreting allows individuals who use Sign Language as their primary mode of communication to have access to what is being spoken in aural settings. 

The SARC also provides access to a captioned telephone and video phone. Captioned Telephones give access to individuals with varying degrees of hearing loss to communicate via a phone line. Video Phones give access to individuals whose primary mode of communication is Sign Language to communicate via a phone line. 

Refer to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Services page for more information.
