If you have a documented disability, you may be eligible for accommodations when you take the SAT Subject Tests and other College Board tests. Some available accommodations are extended time, extra and extended breaks, and reading and seeing accommodations (for example, large-type test books or Braille test books).
Most Families Work with Their School
Students and parents: The best way to get College Board approval for testing with accommodations is to work with your school. Find out why.
College Board Approval Required
Accommodations must be approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities for students taking Subject Tests (as well as other College Board tests including, but not limited to, the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and AP Exams). Scores will be canceled if accommodations are used without College Board approval.
It can take up to seven weeks for accommodations to be approved. If you plan to take Subject Tests in October, for instance, talk to your counselor to start the process in the spring of the previous school year — well before summer break. See the SSD calendar for all test dates and deadlines.
Have You Taken Other College Board Tests?
If the College Board has already approved you to take the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams with accommodations, you don’t need to make another request.
Register for the SAT Subject Tests with Accommodations
Once you're approved for accommodations, you will receive a seven-digit SSD Eligibility Code. You'll be asked to enter this code when you register for Subject Tests online.
If you register by mail, include a copy of your SSD Eligibility Letter in the envelope with your registration form. If you're also using a fee waiver, include your fee waiver card in the same envelope.
Get Ready for Test Day
Check your admission ticket. If you've been approved for accommodations, they should be noted on the ticket. If they're not, call 212-713-8333 to ensure approved accommodations are added to your registration.
If your accommodations have not been approved as the registration deadline nears, register as a standard test-taker and check your updated admission ticket after accommodations are approved.
