ADA Testing Accommodations for Applicants with Disabilities

NCBE provides reasonable testing accommodations for MPRE examinees who have qualified disabilities as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and who provide appropriate documentation in a timely manner. You must register for the MPRE before you can request test accommodations. Please refer to the General Instructions for Requesting Test Accommodations on the MPRE for detailed information and instructions.

NCBE must RECEIVE your request for accommodations, including all supporting documentation, by the late registration deadline for your MPRE test date. This is a “received by” deadline and NOT a postmark deadline; delivery to the post office or a courier service by the deadline does not constitute receipt by NCBE. Please note that there are NO exceptions to the deadline. NCBE will not review or consider any requests or documentation received after the late registration deadline.

NCBE reviews requests for accommodations in the order received. A decision regarding most requests will be made within 10-15 business days of receipt of all documentation. We encourage applicants to register and request accommodations early in the registration period so there is time to seek reconsideration if the request is not granted. Applicants whose requests are received fewer than 15 business days before the deadline run the risk of not having time to appeal if their request is denied.

Requests for accommodations should be submitted by mail, fax, or e-mail to:

National Conference of Bar Examiners
MPRE Test Accommodations
302 South Bedford Street
Madison, WI 53703-3622
Fax: (608) 316-3119
E-mail: mpre.ada@ncbex.org

Written acknowledgement of receipt of your request will be posted to your NCBE account file cabinet within 2 business days of receipt. If you do not receive acknowledgment within this time period, it is up to you to contact NCBE to confirm that your request was received.

Please do NOT submit your request multiple times or by multiple methods. NCBE does not return documentation, so you should keep a copy of everything you submit.
