I have a disability or medical condition that makes it difficult to wear a mask for the duration of the test. I believe I need an adjustment to the mask requirement.
The use of face masks may be required by all staff and MCAT examinees at some test centers depending on state and local guidance. You can check your test center's requirements on the Pearson VUE website. If you have a disability or medical condition that you believe requires an adjustment to this requirement, you are encouraged to apply for an accommodation. Information and instructions on applying for accommodations can be found on the MCAT Accommodation Services web pages. For questions or additional guidance, please contact MCAT Accommodation Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
