Test Accommodations

The NBOME provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act for candidates taking the COMLEX-USA examinations who provide the required documentation substantiating that they are a person with a disability.

Instructions to Request Test Accommodations

Request Accommodation

Request Accommodation for Pregnancy or Lactation

Submit a request by completing the application form and sending it with the required supporting documentation to NBOME Test Accommodations.

A completed application with full supporting documentation is generally evaluated and a decision rendered by the NBOME within approximately seventy-five (75) days of its receipt by the NBOME; however, additional processing time may be required if additional documentation is needed.

You may choose to schedule a standard (non-accommodated) examination while your accommodation application is pending. However, if your application is approved by the NBOME and testing accommodations are granted, and you have not yet taken the examination, you will have to cancel your scheduled examination date so the approved accommodation(s) can be attached to your testing profile. If you have taken the examination without accommodations before being notified of a decision, the NBOME will report your score as if you had not requested an accommodation.

For more details refer to the Bulletin of Information.
