Student Exam FAQs
Medical, Nursing, Dental and Law exams are administered within their own schools.
Physics at NYU Tandon
The Physics department at NYU Tandon generally administers its own undergraduate accommodated exams. Please make sure to request accommodation letters for physics classes through the portal, but you do not generally need to use the portal to schedule exams in these classes.
