Exam Accommodations

Please note the new CAS email address for accommodations correspondence - accommodations@casact.org

Candidates with formally diagnosed disabilities or those who are pregnant and/or nursing, and need special testing arrangements, must submit the online form below as written request and upload appropriate documentation from a healthcare provider. Candidates need to submit updated documentation every 2 years, and therefore do not need to provide documentation if they have already submitted it during the past 4 sittings, however, this request form must be completed for every exam sitting. Documentation of previous accommodations in an educational program or work setting may be considered. The CAS strongly recommends that Accommodation requests be submitted at the candidate's expense at least six weeks prior to the registration deadline for Exams MAS-I, MAS-II, and 5 through 9, for best exam appointment availability at Pearson Vue testing centers.

Candidates must take the following steps:

1. Register for your exam on the CAS website. You will automatically receive an Authorization To Test (ATT) email. DO NOT schedule your exam at this time. 

2. Log into your CAS account and complete the Accommodation Request Form below.  Please allow up to 10-14 business days for your accommodations request to be processed.

3. You will receive correspondence via email following review of your accommodation request. If approved, you will receive a new Authorization To Test (ATT) email. Upon receiving this ATT email, carefully review that your accommodation is consistent with the correspondence you received from CAS accommodations@casact.org. It is the candidate’s responsibility to review this information for accuracy. Please contact CAS at accommodations@casact.org if there is a discrepancy.

Your ATT email will include detailed instructions for scheduling your exam with Pearson VUE. Some appointments may be scheduled online, while others require calling the Pearson VUE Scheduling Department directly.

Please also review Pearson VUE's list of approved comfort aids for items that do not require an accommodation approval.
