Students that need special accommodations

If special accommodations for testing are needed due to a disability, please contact Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC) Appropriate documentation of need for accommodations must be provided to the SDRC prior to approval of testing arrangements.

Also, at UCR, we are able to test students with disabilities who require testing accommodations at any time. This also includes accommodations during the months of July and August. Please contact us if you'd like to take the exam at UCR at a time other than those scheduled on this site.

If you require accommodations for a disability, the process is as follows:

  • Please fill out a reservation form at least 2 weeks in advance of the exam date.
  • Documentation of disability must be submitted to the SDRC. Visit the SDRC website for information about how to register to receive services.
  • The SDRC will approve the accommodation and notify us of all accommodations.

If you have any other questions about receiving accommodations, please contact Steve Garcia via email at steven.garcia@ucr.edu or at 951-827-5245

Students from out of state or out of the country

In the Spring, by late May, new incoming freshmen whose permanent address is out of the state of California will be contacted via email with special instructions about taking the MAE. Please be patient and we will contact you to let you know when and where you can take the exam. The email will be sent to your UCR email account so please be sure to check there.
