Approval & Appeals

Candidates should register for and initiate a request for reasonable accommodations at least forty-five (45) days before the desired examination date.

Requests for accommodations on NCEES exams are reviewed by qualified professionals who possess at least a graduate degree in a field related to the diagnosis, treatment, and/or accommodation of disabilities and have experience evaluating requests for testing accommodations.

NCEES generally makes a decision on an accommodation request within ten (10) business days of receiving the request and all necessary supporting documentation. NCEES will notify the candidate whether the request is approved in full, denied in full, or denied in part. If a candidate is not approved in full for the requested testing accommodation(s), the candidate will receive a written notification that explains the decision. If the denial is due to insufficient documentation, the notice will identify the required information that was not provided and additional documentation that might result in approval of a request.
