Testing Center

DSSO / ACCOMMODATIONS TESTING

Testing services are conducted in-person and by appointment only.

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 kapdss@hawaii.edu 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 Kapiʻolani CC DSSO or Deaf Center to request accommodations in a Kapiʻolani 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.
