Pharmacy College Admission Test Arrangements for Disabled Test Takers
To request special accommodations, candidates have to indicate their need for a special arrangement at the time of registration (either online or with a paper Registration Form). Candidates are required to make the actual request for special accommodations in writing and submit the same by E-mail. The test takers with disabilities must submit their request and relevant documents far in advance of their test date, as Pearson will take atleast 60 days to process the request. The written request must include a completed Accommodations Request Form. Candidates can take the print out of the form by visiting the PCAT official website: www.PCATweb.info.

A letter from an appropriate professional authority must also be included in the request. The letter must describe the nature of candidate's functional limitation that applies to taking a test and the specific accommodations that a candidate will require for testing. After a candidate submits his/her request, Pearson will review the request and approve or disapprove it. In case a candidate’s request is denied by Pearson, candidate can appeal the decision by following the appropriate procedure.
