How Accommodations Work for Each Test
These tests require SSD approval for accommodations:
- PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10
- AP Exams
- CLEP (testing with remote proctoring)
These tests do not require SSD approval for accommodations:
- PSAT 8/9 (unless required by your state)
- CLEP (testing in a test center)
For tests that do not require SSD approval, requests for accommodations should be submitted to the school or test center that is administering the exam.
Do students need to reapply for accommodations each time they take a College Board exam?
The answer is almost always no. Once approved, it is not necessary to reapply for each College Board exam. Unless we are informed that the student no longer needs them, accommodations remain in effect until one year after high school graduation.
