Disability Guidelines

The College Board's eligibility requirements

Some students taking College Board tests may have special needs. For example, students who have learning disabilities, visual impairments or other physical or medical conditions may need accommodations. Some examples of accommodations include extended time, alternate test formats and use of a computer for essays. The College Board is committed to ensuring that students with disabilities receive appropriate accommodations on our tests, including the SAT®, SAT Subject Tests™, AP® Exams and the PSAT/NMSQT®. 

The College Board encourages families to work with their schools to submit requests for accommodations online. All accommodations must be approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD). In many cases, documentation supporting the need for the requested accommodations is also required. With limited exceptions, once approved for accommodations, students are approved for all College Board tests and do not need to reapply when taking different tests.
