How do I obtain housing accommodations, including approval to bring my emotional support animal (ESA) to campus?

If you need housing accommodations, please email HousingAccommodations@tarleton.edu for the steps to get accommodations or to register your animal with the university.  Emotional Support Animals, also referred to as companion animals, fall under the direction of FHA/HUD regulations, not ADA. Requests to bring animals to campus to serve as ESAs are handled by Housing.

Help! I need to schedule an exam.

The Center for Access and Academic Testing has introduced a scheduling platform called RegisterBlast.  This system will streamline the scheduling and testing process for Faculty, Staff, and Students.  This means no more dreaded Disability Examination Request Forms.

With this system, each instructor will have their own profile from which they can upload their test information (length, dates of availability, etc.).  Once the instructor has created the submission, students will be able to select the test from a drop-down menu on our Center for Access and Academic Testing website.  The student will be able to view and pick from our available testing dates/times within the date range the instructor designates.  The instructor plays a vital role in the scheduling of the student.  If the instructor does not complete their profile and their submission, the student will not be able to schedule their exam at the testing center; the exam will not be an option on the drop-down menu.Below instructions on the first step to enrolling in the new system.  After enrollment, each profile will have to be processed and directions for the next step, creating a submission, will be sent to the instructor.

Below you will find instructions on the first step for an instructor to enroll in the new system.  After enrollment, each profile will have to be processed and directions for the next step, creating a submission, will be sent to the instructor.

Please remember that you are not required to use the testing center for accommodated or make up tests as long as the needs of the students are fully met.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (254) 968-9423 or caat@tarleton.edu!

If your instructor has not created a profile, please remind them to contact us for instructions so that you can be tested in the testing center.  Please keep in mind that the instructor does not have to allow you to test at the testing center if they can fulfill your accommodations.

IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO SCHEDULE THEIR TEST AT LEAST ONE (1) WEEK PRIOR TO THE TEST DATE.
