Subject: Graduate Studies Testing

Hi, my name is Justin. I have a learning difference and am considering going to graduate school. I heard that there is a specific provision in either the Americans with Disabilities Act or another law that states how admissions committies can use standardized tests in regards to those with disabilities applying to graduate school. I was wondering if any of you know of this provision and where I might be able to find it? Thanks.

What graduate school are you considering attending? They will likely have guidelines posted for their school outlined according to ADA requirements. For example, here is UMASS's ADA guidelines for accommodations: http://umassmed.edu/schoolservices/ada.aspx?linkidentifier=id&itemid=12244
