AICPA, CIMA and its testing vendor make every effort to reasonably accommodate candidates with documented disabilities as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  If you have a disability as defined under the ADA, you must notify AICPA when you call to register for the CGMA exam by submitting a report regarding your request from your physician or a qualified healthcare professional.  The information must be on the physician’s or other qualified healthcare professional’s letterhead, typed, dated, and signed by the physician or other qualified healthcare professional.  Candidates are responsible for any costs incurred in obtaining the required diagnosis and recommendations.  AICPA will, through the testing vendor, provide any reasonable accommodations that are approved to the candidate at no cost to the candidate.
The written documentation supporting the accommodation you are requesting must include the following:
  • A specific diagnosis and date of your diagnosis
  • Specific and current findings that support your diagnosis (relevant medical history, tests administered, date of the most current evaluation, within the last three (3) years)
  • Specific recommendations for your testing accommodation(s) including a detailed explanation of why the accommodation is needed.  If the accommodation includes extra time, please indicate the amount of time requested.
  • Evidence that similar accommodations have been made for the candidate in other educational or testing situations or in employment settings, or an explanation of why no such accommodation was made in the past but is now required

Submit the documentation either via email to

Important Note: Additional information may be requested after a review of your information.  Accommodations which fundamentally alter the nature or security of the exam will not be granted.
