College Board/SAT/ACT Testing Accommodations

  • College Board (PSAT, SAT, and AP Exams)—To receive accommodations for the PSAT, SAT, or AP exam, students must work with the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) coordinator on their campus. Requests need to be made at least seven weeks prior to the date of the test. Once College Board approves accommodations for any College Board test, those accommodations apply to all tests and do not require further action. (Please note that 8th grade students taking the PSAT 8/9 exam do not need to apply for accommodations through College Board; those are handled locally. Any accommodations that students have for local and state assessments that are also available for PSAT 8/9 are automatically granted.)  (Read about the process HERE.)

    ACT—To receive accommodations on the ACT exam, students must work with the designated person on their campus to apply for accommodations. According to the ACT website, it takes 10-14 days for a response to an accommodation request. Please keep this time frame in mind and work to submit accommodations at least a month prior to the expected test date to ensure ample time for response from ACT.  (Read about the process HERE.)
