Accommodations Handbook

Accommodation Approval Timeline

Depending on your student’s accommodation request, you may or may not be required to submit documentation which can greatly impact an application’s timeline for approval.

  • If you are required to submit documentation, please allow our team a minimum of two (2) weeks to complete its review of your student’s application after you have uploaded supporting documentation and your designated approver has completed their requirements.
  • If you are not required to submit supporting documentation, the approval wait time will greatly depend upon the speed at which your student’s approver takes action in completing their requirements.
  • We recommend allowing at least 3–4 weeks for application approval prior to the applicable registration deadline; however, testing options may be limited in some areas, therefore, please apply for accommodations as soon as possible.
  • Incomplete submissions, or those not meeting EMA’s requirements, may cause for delays in the processing of your student’s application and their ability to register for accommodated testing.

If you have any questions or concerns about your family's ability to provide anything needed for your student to complete testing, please contact EMA immediately and well in advance of your scheduled test date.
