Timeframes –important**

An initial request for accommodations to SAS should normally be initiated a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the next examination. Requests initiated later than that cannot be guaranteed to be processed and approved in time for the upcoming scheduled examination.

NOTE: A request initiated in a shorter time frame, that does not allow consideration and approval prior to the exam seating, will not be considered grounds for an exam deferral.”
