Proctored Exams Will Now Take Place in the Library/LRC


As of Thursday, February 22, EAC students with testing accommodations will now take their exams in the Test Proctoring Center rather than our EAC Office. The Test Proctoring Center is located on the second floor of the Library/LRC Building.

The process for verifying students' disabilities and educational limitations will remain the same. The EAC Office will continue to provide students with a Verification Letter containing test accommodations for quizzes and exams. 

Students, please let your instructors know directly when you want to apply your testing accommodations to your exams.

Instructors, please use the Test Proctoring Center's Test Proctoring Request Form when requesting accommodations for your students.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to either Gilbert Downs at the LRC or Leo Orange at the EAC. Thank you!


EAC's Mission

The Educational Center (EAC) is committed to providing students with disabilities the opportunity to effectively matriculate into the mainstream of college and community life. We provide services that facilitate equal access to education, self-advocacy, academic self-efficacy, and personal growth opportunities to maximize individual student success. While remaining grounded in developing student independence in the post-secondary learning environment, Oxnard College and the EAC department recognize the campus and community cultural wealth and support systems that students bring to our campus. 
EAC values diversity and promotes awareness and retention by providing quality services and courses for students with disabilities. It is a resource for students and the campus community, providing guidance relating to compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Amendments. Consultation and support to the campus are also provided in 508 compliance, distance education, and Universal Design and campus accessibility.
