Reserving Space in the Campus Testing Center
Students and Instructors use RegisterBlast, a reservation system integrated within Canvas, to book accommodated tests in the CTC. RegisterBlast replaced the D&A Testing Module and confirmation system used previously.
Instructors will first need to schedule tests through RegisterBlast at least 5-business days prior to the test date. Students will then need to reserve their seats in the CTC a minimum of 3 days (72 hours) prior to their scheduled test. There will be no instructor confirmation required for exams since instructors will be entering the approved test day/time during the initial scheduling process.
Students should discuss Accommodation Letters with each instructor at the beginning of the semester to determine testing accommodations and how they will be provided.
Who may test at the Campus Testing Center?
Accommodated Exams – Students registered with Disability and Access (D&A) with testing accommodations may reserve space in the Campus Testing Center (CTC) to take their course exams.

Makeup Exams - The Campus Testing Center is not authorized to administer campus-wide makeup exams at this time.
Religious Conflicts - During the period of final exams, students with a regularly scheduled final exam which conflicts with a religious observance may work with their instructor to make arrangements to take the exam at the Campus Testing Center.
Student Emergency Services - Students with an excused absence documented by Student Emergency Services during final exams, may work with their professor to schedule a makeup exam at the Campus Testing Center.
Note: If the student is eligible to take exams at a Testing Facility within their professor’s department, they should schedule there instead. Additional information about accommodated testing options is available here: Options for Accommodated Testing Spaces at UT
