Dealing with college

Recommended Posts

Okay, first and foremost, I ended up with a math teacher I have taken for the 2nd time(once for calculus and this time for statistics). I should have known better than to take her again because of the way she is, but anyways here is the issue. I think I have something other than celiac, but all the doctors have told me I have is "IBS" and Celiac (Havent had the endoscopy/colonoscopy because busy with college). All I am trying to get them to do is let me take a remote final for AN ONLINE CLASS, at home. I am not a cheater, I even told them I have no problem being skyped or recorded, but they tell me I cannot. What do I do? Its been so bad that I cant even leave to go to the post office five minutes away, let alone drive 20 minutes one way to take a test that, to do correctly, will take an hour at least...

I would start with your colleges Disability Department. They may be able to guide you.


Is there a reason you are having such bad symptoms?  Are you on gluten while awaiting tests?  If you are so bad that you can't leave the home there must be more your Dr. could be doing.

This was years ago, but I injured my eyes during final exams week (I stayed up all night writing a paper and left my hard contacts in).  I had severe corneal abrasions.  I took an incomplete in Economics and after the winter break, went back and took the final.  I did have documentation from my doctor and that satisfied my professor.  I can see the school/instructor not wanting to set a precedent by allowing an online final.   But it does not hurt to ask.
