What Do I Do if I Have Test Anxiety?

Remember that you must document your disability with your school’s Disability Services Office in order to receive accommodations. You will work with the Disability Services Office and faculty to identify helpful accommodations such as additional time or a separate test-taking environment. The American with Disabilities Act is designed to support individual variation; every case is different in the area of accommodations – you must find what works for you.
