TESTING FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES



SAT/ACT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

Students with a documented disability may be eligible for accommodations on College Board tests (PSAT/NMSQT, SAT Reasoning Test, SAT Subject Tests and Advanced Placement Program Exams).  A Student Eligibility Form needs to be submitted to request accommodations. To be eligible, the student must:

  • Have a disability that necessitates testing accommodations
  • Have documentation (IEP, 504 Plan or other formal written educational plan/program) on file at school that supports the need for requested accommodations and meets the Guidelines for Documentation
  • Receive and use the requested accommodations, due to the disability, for school-based tests.

Student Eligibility Forms are available in the Guidance Office. For additional information including Guidelines for Documentation visit the College Board Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) website.

Students with current professionally diagnosed and documented disabilities may request accommodations for the ACT Assessment as well. To request extended time on the ACT, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • Professionally Diagnosed Disability
  • Current IEP, 504 Plan or Accommodation Plan must document ALL requested accommodations provided in school

Application forms for the ACT Assessment Extended-Time Testing are available in the Guidance Office. Complete details about ACT’s policies for documentation of requests for testing accommodations are available on ACT’s website.
