Testing Accommodations for TSI - Placement Test Accommodations
Students must identify themselves each semester as individuals requesting accommodation based on a qualifying disability. “Accommodations” includes academic adjustments and requests for auxiliary aids and services.
Per LSC Policy, "Students needing accommodation before a placement test must provide at least three working days’ notice to the Disability Services Office (“DSO”) at the college hosting the placement test. Every effort will be made to provide services for late requests.
The College has a two-step procedure to reasonably accommodate students with qualifying disabilities. Step (1) certifies the student’s qualifying disability and step (2) determines the student’s reasonable accommodation. This procedure is meant to be interactive, deliberate, and collaborative between the College and the student. It is not meant to be burdensome, but it can take time—students are strongly urged to begin the procedure as soon as registration opens and at least four weeks before classes begin.
By starting early, students are more likely to timely receive accommodations. The Disability Services Office accepts and considers requests for accommodation on a rolling basis throughout the year.
To Request Accommodations
To receive accommodations, Lone Star College first has to certify the qualifying disability before determining reasonable accommodations.
