First Year Programs and Placement Exams

Orientation:

If you are requesting accommodations for your Freshmen or Transfer Orientation and/or Placement Exams:

  1. Complete the Pre-Orientation Survey and select your orientation date as part of the New Student Checklist found on the OFYP website. http://www.ofyp.umn.edu/
  2. After you have completed these two steps of the New Student Checklist, you may contact our front desk at 612-626-1333 or drc@umn.edu to request to speak to the Access Consultant coordinating accommodations for OFYP.  During this conversation, the Access Consultant can discuss an appropriate timeline for an initial appointment.
  3. If accommodations are determined reasonable, the Access Consultant coordinating accommodations for OFYP will then communicate the request with the OFYP staff.

Placement Exams:

If you need accommodations for your placement exams and already had your initial appointment, contact your assigned Access Consultant to explore possible accommodations.  If you have not had your initial appointment, contact our front desk to request to speak to the Access Consultant coordinating accommodations for OFYP to explore options.  Please note these exams need to be completed two weeks prior to your assigned orientation date
