How To Apply For Colorado Test Accommodations


Obtain supporting documentation from a qualified professional

Qualified professional must provide written documentation on their letterhead addressing the following items:

  1. Describe the applicant's physical or mental impairment(s) that specifically limit the applicant's ability to take the competency test (s) under standard conditions, given the format of the test.

  2. Describe the diagnostic criteria, clinical judgments, and assessments you used to determine the applicant's impairment(s) identified in item #1 above.

  3. What is the recommended accommodation and how does the accommodation relate to the applicant's disability, given the format of the examination?


Submit an accommodations request with your testing application

When submitting your online application for testing, select “yes” when asked if you are requesting testing accommodations due to a documented disability. Once you select "yes", you will be presented with an accommodations request form.

Complete the accommodation request form and when prompted, upload supporting documentation you obtained from your qualified professional. You may also upload additional documentation (not required) including school records that show participation in special education services, Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), and other records that show a history of academic difficulties due to your disability.

Please note that accommodations cannot be added to a previously scheduled exam.
