Exam Security & Accommodations

The final step for many state licensing candidates is to take an examination in your discipline. Two important things to consider before taking the examination are exam security and testing accommodations.

Exam Security

To protect the legitimacy of ARRT’s credentials, we have strict security regulations. They prohibit you from cheating on your exam or taking action that would help another candidate cheat. If you violate the regulations, you could face legal action and/or risk having your credential revoked.

Test Accommodations

Test accommodations are ways of adapting an exam experience to meet the needs of people who have disabilities that may impair their exam performance. Accommodations can’t change the number of questions or the content an exam covers. And they don’t guarantee improved performance, a passing score, or any specific outcome.


ARRT complies with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). We’ll provide appropriate testing accommodations if you demonstrate that you have an ADA-qualifying disability and that your disability results in substantial functional limitations that affect your daily life activities, as compared to most people. In most cases, you'll need to submit supporting documentation and a personal statement describing your disability. 

Accommodations must be appropriate to the task and setting. For example, although you might have received accommodations in a classroom setting, those adaptations might not be necessary in an ARRT exam setting.

Approved accommodations might include additional time to complete the exam, a separate testing room, or access to snacks for those with diabetes. You won’t need to request test accommodations for “comfort aids,” such as an inhaler, crutches, or eye drops.


If you have additional questions about exam security or testing accommodations, call us at 651.687.0048, then choose the option for earning an ARRT credential. (Please note: We can’t give information about the status of your accommodations request over the phone. Once your review is complete, we’ll send you the decision in writing.)
