Requesting nonstandard testing arrangements for a disability or other health condition
ASWB requires that you request and receive approval for nonstandard testing arrangements before registering for your licensing exam.
1. Complete the form
The request for nonstandard testing arrangements form has two parts, one to be completed by you and one to be completed by your health care provider or other appropriate professional. Both forms must be submitted with original signatures. Faxes, scans, or emails will not be accepted.
2. Submit the request to ASWB
When ASWB receives your request, we will notify you by email. In general, we review requests and notify you within two weeks of whether the requested arrangements are approved, incomplete, or denied. Our staff will contact you if we need additional information or clarification.
3. Register with ASWB to take the exam
If your request for nonstandard testing arrangements is approved, you will register online. When your registration is complete, you will receive an Authorization to Test email that specifies the nonstandard testing arrangements you are approved for.
4. Schedule your exam with Pearson VUE
Depending on the nature of your nonstandard testing arrangements, you may not be able to schedule your exam online but will be able to schedule by phone. Refer to your Authorization to Test email for scheduling and cancellation instructions.
Lactating individuals may be approved for nonstandard testing arrangements so they can pump, express milk, or breastfeed in person during their exam appointment.
