Accommodations on College Board Exams
We want to measure a student’s knowledge—not their disability. That’s why College Board is committed to ensuring that students with disabilities are able to take our tests with the accommodations they need.
When to Request Accommodations
Before a student can take certain exams—PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, SAT, or AP Exams—with accommodations, they must request the accommodations and be approved by College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities.
How to Request Accommodations
Requesting accommodations for College Board exams differs from the process used for school or state exams. So we’ll explain the dates and deadlines, how to submit documentation—and why it’s best to request accommodations through your school.
Read descriptions of frequently requested accommodations, such as extended time for reading and seeing accommodations.
