Student Spotlight:  Taylor Allnutt
Taylor Allnut Student Spotlight

Taylor Allnutt is a freshman from Dallas, Texas.  She earned a 3.66 gpa last semester and is still deciding on a major.  Taylor has a genetic eye disorder called Retinitis Pigmentosa which results in low vision.


In high school, Taylor participated in the marching band, color guard and Spanish Honor Society.  She also received four straight years of academic achievement award.  Taylor says she chose NMU simply because she “fell in love” when she came for a visit.

Taylor has quickly made a place for herself here at NMU as she is in the Honors Program and a member of Alpha Gamma Delta.  Taylor will be traveling to Ireland this May for Volunteer Abroad with Superior Edge.


In her free time, Taylor enjoys reading, swimming and hanging out with her friends.

Testing Accommodations
Information for Students

Show your accommodation letter to your professor.

If the professor would like you to take the quiz/test in Disability Services (DS), fill out the testing accommodation form online or in the DS office.

If the professor will be providing testing arrangements, the DS office does not need to be notified.

Students are expected to take a quiz/test in DS at the same time as the rest of the class. Special arrangements for date/time need to be arranged with the professor.
