Religious Accommodations Policy

CCO is dedicated to a culture of religious freedom. As such, in its discretion, and upon approval, CCO provides reasonable accommodations for religious objections to certain elements of the program.

To apply for religious accommodations:

  1. Download and complete the CCO Application for Religious Accommodations (the “Application”).
  2. If applicable, review the Procedure for Non-Photo ID/Certification Card.
  3. Gather your supporting documentation (e.g., records of prior religious accommodations, fingerprints, government forms, etc.) as detailed in Part 2 of the Application.
  4. Send your completed Application and supporting documentation to CCO via email or mail at least four weeks prior to your testing date.

    5250 S. Commerce Dr., Suite 100
    Murray, UT 84107

All Applications must be accompanied by supporting documentation as outlined in Part 2 of the Application. Incomplete documentation may delay or even prevent the processing of your accommodations request. As set forth in the Application, the supporting documentation requirement may be reduced if you have been previously approved for religious accommodations from CCO within the last five years.

Please be aware that some types of approved religious accommodations may not apply to every testing modality. For example, if you are approved for a non-photo ID/certification card accommodation, you will not be able to receive the approved accommodation for Online Proctored Testing (OPT) or Event Online Testing (EOT).

If you have any questions or need clarification regarding this policy, please contact CCO by email at
