Test Accommodations

If you wish to know if your student already has accommodations, please contact College Board directly at 609-771-7137 or go to www.collegeboard.com/ssd/.

ACT

The ACT process is a bit different than College Board. When you register for an ACT exam and you wish to have accommodations, you will request that as you are registering.
