Testing Accommodations Policy
CCO is dedicated to a culture of non-discrimination. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities act of 1990, as amended (ADA), it is the policy of CCO to accept and process applications for testing accommodations and, when appropriate, to provide testing accommodations to qualifying candidates who demonstrate a need for accommodation due to disability, as defined by the ADA.
In order to apply for CCO accommodations:
- Download and complete the CCO Application for Testing Accommodations (the “Application”). (Please note that this application has been updated as of July 1, 2021).
- Gather your supporting documentation (e.g., records of prior testing accommodations, qualified professional reports, etc.) as detailed in Part 2 of the Application.
- Send your completed Application and supporting documentation to CCO via email or mail at least four (4) weeks prior to your testing date.

ATTN: Testing Accommodations
5250 S. Commerce Dr., Suite 100
Murray, UT 84107
All Applications must be accompanied by supporting documentation as outlined in Part 2 of the Application. Supporting documentation is important to validate that an applicant is covered under the ADA as a disabled individual and to determine the functional limitations, resulting from disability, related to taking CCO examinations. Incomplete documentation may delay or even prevent the processing of your accommodations request. As set forth in the Application, the supporting documentation requirement may be reduced if you have been previously approved for testing accommodations from CCO within the last five (5) years.
Please be aware that starting March 9, 2023, approved written testing accommodations can only be provided through computer-based testing (CBT). This is the exclusive modality through which CCO provides accommodations for written examinations.
Please note that, in order to protect sensitive and confidential medical information, CCO will communicate ONLY with the applicant regarding accommodation requests, unless provided written consent from the applicant to communicate with a third party.
If you have any questions or need clarification regarding this policy, please contact CCO’s Program Integrity Coordinator by phone at 801-363-2693 ext. 310, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
