ADA Accommodations

To receive ADA accommodations for the TEAS exam, applicants need to provide documentation explaining their disability along with specific diagnostic codes. The documentation must also explain, in detail, the connection to the requested accommodations.

Documentation may take the form of a letter from a physician on their official letterhead, emailed directly to Mallory Martin. For testing, a physician may be a psychologist, therapist, or counselor.

For physical disabilities, such as visual impairments, only documentation from primary medical physicians will only be accepted. Individuals may also provide documentation from a previous school. This information must be given significantly in advance of the scheduled exam to allow for accommodations to be implemented.
