The Maryland Board of Public Accountancy complies with the Americans
with Disabilities Act in accommodating examination candidates
with special needs. Any candidate requesting special assistance or accommodations due
to a handicapping condition must submit to the Board documentation
of the need for accommodation for a license professional qualified to make an evaluation.
The documentation should a) establish the existence
of a "disability" within the meaning of applicable
law; b) describe how the resulting functional limitations impact
the individual's ability to take the examination c) demonstrate
the need for an accommodation, and d) specifically identify
the accommodation(s) that are believed to be appropriate. The
evaluation should be no more than three years prior to the examination
and include a history of previous accommodation. Download the
ADA Accommodations Request Form (Word

If you are requesting an accommodation for the first time, documentation must be submitted
with this form in a sealed envelope with your name and indicate
ATTN: CPA Exam Coordinator. Your application will not be processed
and forwarded for scheduling your examination until it is reviewed
and approved by the Board of Public Accountancy.
