Blackboard- Extending Student Time on Tests

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) appreciates your partnership in providing academic accommodations for students registered with our office and approved for services. With Blackboard, the new course management system, we have been informed that only the professor of record can change the test time and assignment time to reflect a student’s approved extended test time or assignment extension in Blackboard courses.

You may have a student currently enrolled in your course that has been approved for academic accommodations through SAS. Our office has partnered with the CIL Online Faculty Concierge team in assisting professors with how to add the extended testing time for online exams by creating the job aide and online module. Please contact the Academic Accommodations Coordinator at for a copy of the job aide and online module.
Should any student provide a copy of his/her accommodation letter and state the approval of extended test time, complete the steps outlined in the job aide to add the extended test time for quizzes and exams in Blackboard.

Should you have any questions regarding the job aide or the module, please contact the CIL Online Faculty Concierge team at 1-877-533-4733 Option 2.

Thank you again for your flexibility during this change and your willingness to assist our mutual students. Contact SAS right away at regarding any student or professor concerns and questions regarding testing accommodations.
