Educational Testing Services Accommodations
If you need accommodations for an exam administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS), such as PRAXIS exams or GRE, you must submit documentation to ETS Disability Services. Please note, approval for accommodations for MSUM classes does not guarantee accommodations for ETS exams. ETS Disability Services, not MSUM Accessibility Resources, determines accommodations for ETS exams.
