For students needing Test Accommodations

If you are a student with a documented disability and have not voluntarily disclosed the nature of your disability so that we may coordinate the accommodations you need, you are invited to contact the Disability Support Services Office (DSSO) in 'Ilima 107, phone: 808.734.9552, or e-mail for assistance. For students whose primary disability is deaf or hard of hearing, contact the KCC Deaf Center in Manono 102, phone 808.734.9210 (V) or 808.447.1379 (video phone).

Please note that you will need to contact the Kapi'olani CC DSSO or Deaf Center to request accommodations in a Kapi'olani CC course even if you have already registered or are receiving services at another UH campus' disability support program.

The DSSO office works closely with instructors and the Testing Center to ensure that students with disabilities have the proper accommodations to help them succeed on their test.

Test Center Location

  • We are located on the first floor of the Library in Lama 101.

Hours of Operation

Student Responsibilities

  • Students utilizing this service must be registered with DSSO.
  • Remind your instructor that you will need testing accommodations.
  • Your instructor will place a paper exam on file in the Testing Center for you to take. For an online test, your instructor will send us the instructions several days prior to the first available test date.
  • Check-in ends promptly one (1) hour prior to closing. However, we strongly recommend you arrive at the Testing Center with plenty of time to check-in and take your test.
  • The Testing Center will collect all tests, completed or not, at the posted closing time.

Test Check-In Procedures

  • Bring your Picture ID! No ID -- No Test.
    (Driver's license/permit, State ID, Military ID, School ID, Passport, USCIS Green Card, EAD, other any other government issued ID card with a picture on it)
  • Know your UH Username. This is the first part of your e-mail address.
  • Know what test you're taking. You will be asked to provide the following:
    • Course name and course number (e.g. ZOOL 141)
    • Test that you are taking (e.g. Exam 1, Exam 2, etc.)
    • The name of your instructor
      ("I don't know the name of my instructor because I'm in an online course" is NOT a valid excuse for not knowing your instructor's name.)

Before coming to the test center

  • If your test is ONLINE (via Laulima, Pearson MyLab, etc), login to your course to check your test open/close dates, as well as time limits. You (the student) are responsible for adhering to your instructor's deadlines AND testing center hours of operation. Instructors generally submit online test requests to the Testing Center several days before the first available test date.
  • If your test is on PAPER, instructors generally drop off tests before the first available test date.
  • If you MISSED an in-class paper exam, make arrangements with your instructor to make-up your exam at the Testing Center. Please note that not all instructors use this service. You are responsible for checking with your instructor to see if they will allow make-ups at the Testing Center.

If the deadline for an online quiz, test, or exam has passed

Contact your instructor. Only instructors are able to change/adjust test administration dates/times.

Test Security and Monitoring

Follow all instructions by testing center staff and proctors. Security cameras and computer monitoring software are in use and is actively monitored to ensure academic academic integrity and test security. Exams will be stopped if there is observed use of any unauthorized material, not limited to websites, books, notes, and electronic equipment (cell phones, tablets, etc).
