Quick Guide to Accommodations on the SAT 
for Students with Disabilities

Based on the questions we receive about accommodations on college boards (SATs), there is a great deal of confusion about how to obtain accommodations on the SAT. We decided there is a need for a quick guide to accommodations on the college boards (SATs). Our research editor, Sue Whitney, provided the information in this Quick Guide to Accommodations on the SAT.

The College Board's Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) provides a broad range of accommodations, such as Braille tests, large print, and extended time, to students who provide documentation of a disability. 

General information and FAQs about the process.

New! College Board Simplifies Request Process for Test Accommodations. Beginning January 1, 2017, the vast majority of students who are approved for and using testing accommodations at their school through a current Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan will have those same accommodations automatically approved for taking the SAT®, PSAT™10, PSAT/NMSQT®, SAT Subject Tests™, and AP® Exams.

Proof of Disability

Information about eligibility and proving that a child has a disability and needs accommodations flow from this page, "Services for students with disabilities".
