Licensure and/or Entrance Exams

When taking licensure exams, including the Praxis or NCLEX or entrance exams for graduate school such as the GRE and MCAT, you may be eligible for testing accommodations. Please refer to the specific testing website for instructions. Be advised that the request and approval process may be lengthy. It is crucial to start the process well before the exam.  

While AES can provide you with a copy of your Evaluation and Accommodation plan upon request, it is essential to know that documentation requirements for licensure or graduate entrance exams may require additional documentation. Please call, email, or stop by our offices. AES is happy to support you.

Please note that we can only release copies of documentation to a UP email account.  We cannot release to a personal email (yahoo, gmail, etc.).  See below for information on accessing your UP email after graduation.

If you submitted any documentation to our office through Dynamic Forms, that information is available to you!  Here is a brief Sway presentation on how to access your submitted documentation.

If you need assistance with completing a required form, please contact our office.  For the foreseeable future, our office is teleworking and available mostly by email ( or Microsoft Teams.

Graduate School

If you are headed to graduate school, be sure to connect with the disability services office at that institution to begin the interactive accommodation process. Should you need a copy of your Documentation Evaluation and Accommodation Plan, you may request one from AES.

Students continuing at UP are encouraged to contact our office before classes begin to confirm the accommodations for graduate school. 

You can acquire any documentation that you submitted to AES through Dynamic Forms by logging into Dynamic Forms and viewing your "Form History" tab.

UP Alumni Email

Per Information Services, your student email will migrate to an alumni email account 90-days after your status has changed on the system.  The only difference will be that your UP emails will come from an alumni address rather than your student address (example: instead of
