Students with Disabilities
The steps to receive test accommodations
5/3 , 6/7
If you have a documented disability, you may be eligible for accommodations on SAT Program tests. Arrangements can be made if you need accommodations such as: wheelchair accessibility; preferential seating; special test formats such as Braille or large print; written copy of spoken directions; or other accommodations. Visit our Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) student page for information about accommodations, the request process and required documentation.
To receive test accommodations, you need to:
Apply for accommodations
All accommodations must be approved by SSD. Work with your school’s SSD Coordinator to submit a request for accommodations online. Or visit our SSD student page for information on how to request accommodations without the assistance of your school.
Submit your request for accommodations the spring before your first test
Start the process early. If possible, submit your request for accommodations in the spring before your first College Board test (PSAT/NMSQT, AP or SAT) to ensure enough time to process your application. View SSD dates and deadlines.
When registering online for the SAT, you are prompted to enter your unique SSD Eligibility Code. This code is located in the upper right-hand corner of your Eligibility Letter, which you receive when your accommodations are approved.
If you choose to register by mail, include a copy of your Eligibility Letter with your registration and payment.
If you must register before your accommodations are approved:
If your accommodations have not been approved yet, you must register as a standard test-taker. Once your accommodations are approved, check your Admission Ticket online or call 609-771-7137 to confirm that your registration has been updated to reflect the accommodations.
Eligibility application deadlines are earlier than the SAT registration deadlines. Accommodations approved less than two weeks before a test date cannot be guaranteed until the next test. Be sure to print your updated ticket or request that one be mailed to you in time for test day.
For further information, ask your counselor or visit our SSD student page.
