REQUESTS FOR TESTING ACCOMMODATIONS
MBLE reminds exam applicants seeking accommodations to review Rule 8.08, Regulation 10 and the information below regarding submission requirements.
Fully completed ADA requests for testing accommodations and repeat accommodations MUST be submitted with your electronic bar exam application, pursuant to Regulation 10 of Rule 8.08. This means ALL forms and supporting documentation must be uploaded to your user homepage with your application submission. Requests for accommodations which are not complete or not timely filed shall be rejected. Extensions will not be granted and late requests will not be considered.
NOTE – Applicants with pending bar applications (pending but not submitted) will not be able to upload their ADA accommodation request forms (or other documents) until they have completed electronic submission of their application and it has no critical warnings (see the Forms & Progress section of your MBLE user homepage). The blue Upload New Document button will appear in the bottom right-hand corner of your homepage after you have properly submitted your electronic application. Once you submit your electronic application, all ADA accommodation request forms and supporting documentation must be uploaded on the same day as your application submission. Any documents or forms not uploaded on the same date as your electronic submission date are not timely filed and will not be considered.
For additional information, see the MBLE website Request for Accommodations page and the General Instructions for Requesting Test Accommodations.
