  • Identify application requirements associated with your condition

Our Review Process

Our policies are guided by the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as our mission to provide a valid exam while maintaining a level playing field for all test takers. Keep in mind, it is your current functional limitations (in combination with the demands of the task you will be undertaking), not diagnosis alone, that determines the appropriateness of a requested accommodation.

Since most applicants for AAMC PREview® accommodations have taken or will be taking the MCAT exam, both exams require the same supporting documentation. Please read the documentation requirements provided on the MCAT exam webpages.

Below is an overview of the components that we look for within your documentation:

  • Identification of your diagnosis and impairments by a qualified professional

  • Discussion of the current functional limitations affecting your ability to access the exam

  • Recommendations for accommodations on the exam

  • A rationale for each recommended accommodation
