Using Accommodations with Access Online
Beginning in January 2017, the AAAC will be using a new online system for accommodation notices. This means that you will not need to come into the office to complete your notices for the Spring 2017 semester with your Access Specialist. Instead, you can log on to the new system and send your accommodation notices by following the directions given below. We will also be posting some training videos in the very near future.
Testing accommodations will also be scheduled using the new software system. The previous online form we used will no longer be available and you will schedule your tests via the new system, which we are calling “ACCESS ONLINE”.
If you need to change or add an accommodation, or have other issues you need to discuss with your Access Specialist, you can still come in to the office for assistance. Make an appointment by calling the AAAC front desk at 785-864-4064.

6)Your landing page will look like this (see below). Click the Annual Requirements Form – you will need to read the form and then type your name in as a signature.
7) After you have completed the annual requirements form, you will see “Your To Do List” which will state whether or not you’ve scheduled your tests for a particular class.
8)Click the “Step 2” bar:
9)On the next page you will see the courses you selected and the list of your approved accommodations below it. Check the accommodation(s) that you want to apply to that specific class. If you need an accommodation that is NOT shown in your accommodations list, you will need to contact your Access Specialist at AAAC.
10)Click the “Submit Your Accommodation Requests” bar at the bottom of course list.
11)You will see this image if you have successfully sent your accommodation requests:
12)Once your instructor has received and acknowledged your accommodation notice, your next step will be to schedule any tests that you may be taking in our Testing Center. You cannot schedule a test until your instructor does his/her part. If the instructor is administering the test to you, you do not need to complete this portion.
HOW TO SCHEDULE EXAMS USING THE NEW ACCESS ONLINE SOFTWARE:
1)The “To Do” List at the top of your landing page will denote if you have not scheduled tests for a
specific class (and you have testing accommodations). If the instructor is giving you the test with accommodations, then you do not need to schedule with our office.
2)To schedule a test, look at the menu on the left side of the page and click “Alternative Testing”:
3)Select the course in which would like to schedule a test and click the “Schedule an Exam” button. If you do not see your course listed, this means that your alternative testing contract HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETED BY YOUR INSTRUCTOR and you are unable to schedule alternative testing at this time.
4)You must then select the appropriate information under each asterisk (*). Click “Add Exam Request” when you have finished selecting your information.
5)The “Alternative Testing” page will also keep a list of all tests you have scheduled:
