About ARRT’s Testing Accommodations
ARRT complies with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and will provide appropriate testing accommodations if you demonstrate that you have an ADA-qualifying disability. Accommodations might include permission to use medical aids such as insulin pumps, Pico pocket magnifiers, lumbar pillows, and asthma inhalers.
In most cases, you'll need to submit supporting documentation and a personal statement describing your disability.
How to Request Testing Accommodations
There is a section on your application for ARRT certification and registration where you can request testing accommodations. If you select “yes” you'll receive information on how to apply for testing accommodations after we receive your ARRT application. If you check “no” for testing accommodations on your application, you’ll have to take the exam without them.
We contract with Paradigm Testing, an independent company, to manage our ADA testing accommodations requests—so you’ll eventually be submitting a form and supporting documents to them. You must submit the form each time you attempt an exam, including reexamination attempts.
We’ll hold your application for one year if you select "yes" for ADA accommodations. If you don’t submit an accommodation request form and supporting documents by then, we’ll process your application without any testing accommodation. Once we process your ARRT application and assign an exam window, we can’t grant any testing accommodations.
If you have additional questions about testing accommodations, call us at 651.687.0048, ext. 8520. Note—we can’t give information about the status of your accommodations request over the phone. Once your review is complete, we’ll send you the decision in writing.
