Special Accommodations

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures that individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to fairly compete for and pursue employment opportunities by requiring testing entities to offer exams in an accessible manner.

To request an accommodation for a professional license or certification, please complete the application:

Application for Examination Accommodations for Candidates with Disabilities
(Form 08-4449)

Instructions:

  1. All candidates must fully complete Section A of the application.
  2. If the candidate received a prior accommodation while taking a similar examination, documentation verifying the prior examination and accommodation must be submitted with Section A of the application.
  3. If the candidate has not received a prior accommodation, a licensed/certified or otherwise qualified professional whose credentials are appropriate to diagnose, evaluate, and treat the disability must complete Section B of the application, and submit it together with Section A.
  4. Return all required documentation to:
    • Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing
      P.O. Box 110806
      Juneau, Alaska 99811-0806
  5. All documentation must be received by the application deadline for the exam for which the candidate is applying.

Our staff will strive to let you know whether our office has granted an accommodation within two weeks of receipt of a completed form . Depending on the exam, the testing entity may require additional information. Our office will work with you to make this process as smooth as possible.
