Information sources that clarify the SSD eligibility processing

All of the forms listed below may also be obtained by contacting the College Board. Requires Adobe Reader (latest version recommended). Please use the contact information on the right to reach us directly with additional questions or concerns.

  • Parent Consent Form (.pdf/204K)
    Prior to submitting a request for accommodations using SSD Online, the SSD Coordinator needs to verify that the school has a Parent Consent Form on file. This form may be downloaded and given to the parent or guardian for signature. (Students may sign the form themselves if they are 18 years of age or older.)
  • A sample of the Student Eligibility Form (.pdf/1.1MB)
    SSD Coordinators are encouraged to use SSD Online to submit requests for accommodations online.  If SSD Online is not available, a paper Student Eligibility Form may be submitted. This is a scannable form; therefore, neither you nor the student/parent can download and complete this sample copy. Note: It is provided here for information purposes. Only the original Student Eligibility Form, completed and signed in pencil, can be processed by the College Board.
  • Instructions for Completing the Student Eligibility Form (.pdf/548K)
    Provides greater detail regarding the process of helping students complete the Student Eligibility Form by providing information about the students' disability documentation on file at school and the accommodations the students receive at school.
  • Teacher Survey on Student's Classroom Learning Behavior (.pdf/103K)
    This survey is designed to help educational professionals provide qualitative information that documents the student's nature and degree of daily school-based functional limitations in subject areas such as reading, writing, and math, resulting from the diagnosed disability. The survey also asks for information related to the student's use and effectiveness of the requested accommodation/s based on classroom observation and assessments. (Note: You are not required to complete this survey to meet College Board documentation guidelines. This is a supplement to help substantiate a student's need for accommodations.)
  • SSD Coordinator Form (.pdf/332K)
    The SSD Coordinator is a liaison between the school and College Board in SSD communication, publications, forms, materials and activities. Every school should designate at least one SSD Coordinator. To submit this information to us, please print out the SSD Coordinator Form  and return it to us by mail or fax, using the contact information provided. You can also use this form to notify us of any updates or changes to the SSD Coordinator name and contact information. In order to use SSD Online, you need to submit an SSD Coordinator Form.  Schools may have more than one SSD Coordinator, but should designate one individual as the primary contact.
  • SSD School Testing Calendar Form (.pdf/378K)
    Each school should submit this form annually to notify the College Board of what tests the school is participating in.  Print out the SSD School Testing Calendar Form and return it to us by mail or fax.
  • Accommodations Change Request Form  (.pdf/206K)
    This can be used to request changes to accommodations currently being received on College Board tests. Changes include adding or removing a previously approved accommodation. Please complete and submit the Accommodations Change Request Form along with disability documentation that meets College Board Guidelines. A signature from the SSD coordinator and the parent/guardian (for students under 18 years of age) is needed to complete the form.
  • Temporary Accommodations Request Form  (.pdf/149K)
    This form can be used to request accommodations for temporary medical conditions, such as a broken arm.  Note that temporary accommodations are available only in limited circumstances. See Temporary Medical Conditions.
  • Request for Student Name Change Form (.pdf/105K)
    This form should be used for SSD students who require changes to the spelling of their name. For significant name changes (different first name or different last name), a valid photograph with the student’s name and a copy of one of the following forms of identification should be submitted: School Identification Card, Birth Certificate, Social Security Card, Driver’s License, Passport, or Court Order of Legal Name Change. For minor changes (typos, nicknames, etc.) the form can be submitted without any accompanying documentation. Print, complete, sign and fax this form along with required identification documentation (if necessary) to the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities Program. Please allow 2 to 3 business days for name change requests to be processed. (Note: Do not use a student’s SSD online cover sheet when submitting this form nor attach any other cover sheet to it).
