Documentation Guidelines: Physical or Medical Disability
To receive accommodations for College Board exams, students with physical or medical disabilities must make a request to College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD)—even if they have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), a 504 plan, or already receive those accommodations for school or state tests. This includes permission to eat food, take medication, test blood sugar, and use medical equipment during the test.
Students who have a short-term injury or condition are not eligible for accommodations through SSD and should instead consult temporary medical conditions for information on receiving assistance.
For students with diagnosed physical or medical disabilities, all requests should meet seven key criteria.
