SAT/ACT Testing Accommodations

Information and resources for you and your student.

Applying for Testing Accommodations

The College Board and ACT have similar requirements when it comes to applying for testing accommodations.

According to the College Board and ACT, these are the qualifications to receive accommodations on the SAT:

  • First, the learning disability, diagnosis or support need must be documented (such as in an IEP).
  • Second, this disability or diagnosis must be something that would actually influence the student negatively on the test itself.
  • Third, the accommodation must be targeted to mitigate the problem caused by the disability or diagnosis.

Most students who receive accommodations on the SAT and ACT are already receiving accommodations in school.

Both the College Board and ACT are committed to helping students with all manor of disabilities and there is a wide range of accommodations available to those who qualify. For more information on what accommodations are available, see the following websites:
