Comprehensive Examination Accommodations
Each request for exam accommodations is considered on a case-by-case basis. Requests must be submitted at least six (6) weeks in advance of your preferred examination window. We encourage you to submit your request as early as possible in order to maximize the likelihood that you will be able to take your accommodated examination within your preferred testing window and/or at your preferred PearsonVue testing location. Applicants must resubmit documents if their disability status or requested accommodation changes.
Follow these steps
Read the Documentation Guidelines for Candidates Requesting Examination Accommodations.
Print a copy of the Accommodations Request Form for your disability and complete the appropriate sections. A completed Accommodation Request Form shall remain valid for one (1) year from the date of submission. The form will be considered for examinations occurring within the one (1) year period.
If you haven't already done so, give your evaluator (doctor, psychologist) a copy of the Accommodations Request Form and the Documentation Guidelines for Evaluators for your disability. Your evaluator should complete the relevant sections of the form and make sure that the documentation he/she provides meets our guidelines. In most cases, your evaluator will be a psychologist or doctor who administers a series of psychological, educational, or medical tests and provides you with a copy of a diagnostic report or a detailed letter.
When both you and your evaluator have completed the Accommodations Request Form and you have all of your supporting documentation, scan, and email your documents to firstname.lastname@example.org or Fax (312) 335-4283.
Allow 30 business days for us to review your materials.
We will notify you by email of our decision. If you are approved for accommodations, we will provide you with instructions for scheduling your accommodated exams with PearsonVUE’s Accommodations Team. You must then contact PearsonVUE to schedule your exam appointments. We recommend that you schedule your exams as soon as you receive authorization, as we cannot guarantee that your preferred testing center locations will have the facilities available for your accommodated exam during your preferred testing window. It is your responsibility to ensure that you provide us with a current, accurate email address.
If an accommodation request is denied you may appeal that decision by completing and filing a Candidate Appeal Form.
