Requests for special accommodation must be submitted in writing to the Admissions Department (email@example.com) by the application deadline, when possible, and include the appropriate supporting documentation. Last-minute requests may be difficult to arrange. Depending on the nature and extent of the request, supporting documentation may be submitted as a medical report, a detailed physician’s note or an official letter from the leader of a religious congregation that supports the candidate’s request.
The Registration Manager will review the requests, ensure their confidentiality, and discuss available options with the Director of Examinations, Executive Director, or Registrar, when required. Special accommodations will be granted only for the same cycle for which the Credentials Committee has reviewed and approved a candidate’s application.
