Testing Supports for English Language Learners

To make the SAT even more accessible to students, the College Board has worked with educators and state partners to provide testing supports for English language learners (ELL). As of January 1, 2017, ELL students taking a state-funded SAT during the school day have access to testing instructions in several native languages and approved word-to-word bilingual glossaries.
