This page gives you an overview of how to request accommodations for ETS tests. For complete instructions on the accommodations request and registration process, see the Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs for the appropriate program. If you’re requesting the same accommodations approved within the past 2 years, see how to request previously approved accommodations.
Submit your request as early as possible. Documentation review takes approximately 4–6 weeks once your request and complete paperwork have been received at ETS. If additional documentation is requested, it may be another 2–4 weeks from the time the new documentation is received until the review is complete.
