  • The TCRR proctors assessments for students registered through the Office of Disability Services, ODS, that are administered on campus for a Texas State University course. For example, students taking an online course where the instructor administers the exams on campus would be eligible to take those exams at our center. Take home exams are ineligible unless the student cannot access his or her testing accommodations. For example, a student needs a reader, but does not have access to text-to-speech software at home. All questions as to whether, or not, an assessment is eligible for administration at the TCRR should be directed to the Testing Center, Round Rock Supervisor.

  • Students are responsible for providing all necessary approved testing materials for an exam. Examples include but are not limited to calculators, rulers, special pencils or pens.

    The TCRR provides all scratch paper and answer forms such as scantrons and blue books for testing. Number 2 pencils are also available. Single-use ear plugs are available upon request.

  • Texas State University course assessments with accommodations may be taken at either campus. If you would like to take an assessment at the San Marcos campus, first discuss it with your instructor, then coordinate with ATSD.
