General Information

Accommodation Requests
All applicants and students should be familiar with KYCOM's technical standards. Students may submit requests for reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to the associate dean for student affairs. Applicants with disabilities are expected to provide their requests for accommodations along with submission of their KYCOM secondary applications. Given that student health may change while enrolled, KYCOM students who develop limitations should consult with the associate dean for student affairs as soon as limitations are diagnosed. Student requests for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should be accompanied by documentation of the disability from an appropriate health care professional along with a waiver that allows KYCOM administration and the health care provider to discuss the requested accommodations. The student will be responsible for the cost of any diagnostic testing that is needed.

Students who wish to request accommodations for special learning needs or test-taking should meet with the associate dean for academic affairs no later than the first week of classes of the fall semester with the appropriate documentation. Determinations concerning accommodations for special learning needs or test taking conditions will be made by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs following guidelines established by the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME). Further, granting of testing accommodations by KYCOM does not guarantee that similar accommodations will be granted by professional testing organizations, e.g., the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners.
