How to Fill Out the Student Eligibility Form
This paper form is used when a request for accommodations cannot be submitted through SSD Online. The reasons may be:
- The family is not requesting through the school
- The student is homeschooled
- The school doesn't have access to SSD online
When families submit the Eligibility Form without going through the school
When a family sends the Student Eligibility Form and documentation directly to the College Board, all sections, except Section 16 (Confirming Information and Signature), must be completed. An incomplete Student Eligibility Form will not be processed.
When a school submits the Student Eligibility Form for a student
Sections 1–11 are generally completed (and must be signed) by the student or parent. Sections 12–16 are to be completed by the official representative of the student’s school (often the school’s SSD coordinator). The school will then mail the application for accommodations on the student’s behalf but should keep a copy of each student’s submitted eligibility form on file.
Before you start
Before you start, you’ll need to know:
- Which test your student will be taking
- The student’s diagnosis and what methods of evaluation were used
- What accommodations you intend to request
- What accommodations, if any, are currently provided for school
- Whether your student has a current (within 12 months) IEP, 504 plan, or other formal plan
