Accommodations for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs

ETS is committed to serving test takers with disabilities or health-related needs by providing accommodations that are reasonable and appropriate given the purpose of the test. Testing accommodations are available for test takers who meet ETS requirements.

Important Documents

When applying for disability accommodations, be sure to review the following documents:

GACE® Bulletin Supplement – contains contact information, procedures for requesting testing accommodations, and forms

GACE® Registration Bulletin – contains additional important information for all test takers

To request a large-print copy of the Bulletin and the Bulletin Supplement, contact ETS Disability Services.

When Should I Submit My Request?

All test takers requesting any accommodations must submit their requests and have their accommodations approved by ETS Disability Services before they can test.

Your request should be submitted as early as possible, especially if you are requesting an alternate test format. Documentation review takes approximately six weeks once your request and complete paperwork have been received. Please wait for your approval notice before registering to test.

How to Apply

Disability Accommodation Requests

Due to limited staffing in our offices, please submit all GACE Disability Accommodation requests and supporting documents electronically via your ETS GACE testing account to ensure that we are able to receive your requests. Note that during this time there may be additional delays in processing accommodation requests.

Note: If you have a health-related need that requires you to bring equipment, beverages, or snacks into the testing room, or to take extra or extended breaks, you must follow the accommodations request procedures in the Bulletin Supplement.


Through your ETS GACE testing account, you can:

  • Submit accommodation requests
  • View approved accommodations
  • View test appointments
  • Schedule your test if you are approved for certain accommodations (extended time; extended breaks; screen magnification; and/or selectable foreground and background colors)

To apply for accommodations online:

  1. Log in to your ETS GACE testing account. If you do not have an account, view how to create an ETS GACE testing account.
  2. Click on "Accommodation Status/New Request" under the "Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-Related Needs" section on the home page.
  3. Then follow the instructions on the screen.
