Accommodations for Applicants with Disabilities
The National Conference of Bar Examiners 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.
Applicants wishing to request accommodations for the MPRE should carefully review the General Instructions for Requesting Test Accommodations for complete instructions and information. Applicants must submit a completed Form 1: Applicant Request for Test Accommodations and supporting medical documentation from a qualified professional. NCBE provides Guidelines for Documentation (ADHD, Learning Disability, Psychological Disability, Physical Disability, and/or Visual Disability) to assist applicants and their qualified professionals in documenting the need for accommodations on the MPRE. It is recommended that the qualified professional also complete Form 2: Qualified Professional’s Recommendation. Form 2 is optional and is not a substitute for medical documentation. Additionally, applicants who previously have received accommodations from an educational institution or testing agency must submit Form 3: Certification of Accommodations History or provide other verifying documentation of the accommodations. Submit all forms and supporting documentation together in one submission.
DEADLINE TO REQUEST ACCOMMODATIONS: Applicants must register for the MPRE before requesting accommodations. Requests for accommodations, including all supporting documentation, must be received by NCBE by the late registration deadline for the MPRE. Note: this is a “received by” deadline and not a postmark deadline.
Requests for accommodations should be submitted by mail, fax, or email to
