If you previously requested disability accommodations with HBX, please do not schedule your exam online. Instead, please use the designated Pearson contact information HBX provided upon approval of your accommodation. If you did not already request disability accommodation but wish to do so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then walk you through the necessary documentation to receive an accommodation. Please note: if you have already scheduled an exam appointment, you will need to cancel the appointment before we are able to load you into the Pearson VUE system as a participant with an approved accommodation.
