A decision regarding your accommodation request may take up to three (3) to four (4) weeks, however our average turn around time is 7 to 10 business days.
If we approve your request for accommodations, then you will be able to schedule an accommodated testing. It is not possible to schedule an accommodated testing before receiving approval for accommodations. Therefore, we request that you not book a testing appointment until you receive our decision regarding your accommodation request.
