Salesian Quote of the Day

“Fear is a greater evil than evil itself. O you of little faith: what is it you fear? Do not be afraid. You are walking on water, amid wind and wave, but you are with Jesus. What is there to fear? If fear takes hold of you, cry out strongly, “O Lord, save me!” He will hold out a hand to you. Hold on tight, and go forward with joy.”  St. Francis de Sales

Faculty: Disability Service Office Final Exams Information

The DSO is requesting that faculty send or deliver exams as soon as possible to the DSO.  An increasing number of students utilize assistive technology which requires time to scan and upload exams into the software.

We will be providing delivery of completed final exams. Our final exam delivery schedule is as follows:

  • 9:00 AM finals will be delivered between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM.
  • 12:15 PM finals will be delivered between 3:30 PM and 4:30 PM.
  • 2:30 PM exams will be delivered by 10:00 AM the following day.
  • Saturday exams will be scanned and emailed to you by 5:00 PM. The hardcopy will be delivered the following Monday by 10:00 AM.

You may pick up your students’ final exams in the DSO immediately following their completion, if you desire.

Again, thank you for your cooperation and for supporting all of the students at DeSales! If you have any questions or concerns please contact Carolyn.Tiger@Desales.edu.
