A request for testing accommodations is treated separately from the application you file to take an exam. Applications for testing accommodations may be submitted before filing an application to take an exam. However, you must first be registered with the State Bar as a general or attorney applicant, or the request for accommodations will not be processed. Requests for testing accommodations are processed in the order received and in accordance with the Admissions Rules.
A request for testing accommodations is considered complete when the State Bar has received all required forms and any supporting documentation. A request may be deemed incomplete if the required forms are incomplete, or if the applicant or qualified professional does not respond in full to the required questions. A request that is incomplete by the final exam application deadline shall not be processed for that exam. Deadlines will not be extended for requests that are incomplete.
Certain accommodations will be automatically granted through the automatic approval process. If a request does not qualify for automatic approval, you will need to submit additional items beyond the Testing Accommodations Request form:
You must provide adequate documentation and rationale to support the requested accommodations and their relationship to the effects of your disability.
