Scheduling with the MAX Center via the AIM System

Faculty and students should discuss early in the semester how exam accommodations will be provided:

  • Will the faculty member provide exam accommodations or will these be coordinated with the MAX Center?
  • What is the agreed on date and length of the exam?

If testing accommodations cannot be provided by the faculty, schedule with the MAX Testing Center with the following steps:

How do I know my exam has been scheduled?

Log back into AIM.   

Go to “Accommodations” and then “Alternative Testing”. Your exams will be listed along with the exam status. 

If you need to modify an exam, click “modify”.  Your faculty member and the MAX Center must be notified/approve exam modifications.
