Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
If a student has a documented learning disability, visual or hearing impairment, psychiatric issue, or other physical or psychological challenge that interferes with learning, the Center for Student Success (CSS) can arrange accommodations for each student’s classes in compliance with the American Disabilities Act. Based on the student’s particular needs, accommodations may include but are not limited to:
- Extended testing time
- Quiet testing location
- Assistive technology
- Note takers
- Alternative text formats
- Sign language interpreter
It is the student’s responsibility to self-disclose a disability. Once documentation has been provided, CSS can arrange accommodations with instructors each semester.
Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
The Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations (JCNDE) provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act for individuals with documented disabilities or a medical condition who demonstrate a need for accommodations and request accommodations prior to testing. Accommodations will not be noted on test results or shared with any third party (e.g. dental schools, state licensing agencies, etc.).
Special Accommodations Request for the CDCA examinations (Commission on Dental Competency Assessments
All requests are reviewed by the CDCA Director of Examinations and are subject to approval. A doctor’s note on his/her official letterhead (or with official stamp) that explains the candidate’s condition and what accommodations are requested must be uploaded to the candidate’s online profile. Contact us to indicate that you are requesting special accommodations and that you have uploaded the documentation to your profile. Include your full name in your email for faster processing. Without a doctor’s request for accommodations, your request will not be reviewed by the Director of Examinations, which means that your request will be automatically denied. You must submit a new request for each exam you register for. Do not contact Prometric to schedule an appointment before you receive a final response from CDCA regarding your accommodation request.
