Some students with disabilities have special testing needs. Eligible students can apply to SSD for accommodations for the PSAT/NMSQT, the SAT, SAT Subject Tests and Advanced Placement Program® (AP) Exams.
The College Board provides a broad range of accommodations to students with documented disabilities. Examples of accommodations include tests in Braille or large print, extra breaks between sections and extended testing time. Eligible students must apply and be approved before they can use accommodations on College Board tests.
The school counselor and SSD Coordinator can help submit the necessary information on line.
Accommodations requests should be submitted in plenty of time to go through the review process.
Students whose documented disabilities affect them during testing situations may be eligible for accommodations.
As part of this process, schools provide the College Board with detailed information about the disability. This may include a diagnosis and any evaluation results.
After a request has been reviewed, the student and school are notified of the decision and any accommodations that have been granted.
