Most students who use testing accommodations through an IEP or 504 plan can now automatically use those same accommodations on college-entrance and advanced placement tests administered by the College Board.
Under the new policy, effective Jan. 1, public school students with school-level accommodations who take the SAT, PSAT and PSAT/NMSQT, subject tests and AP exams will have those same accommodations automatically approved. Most private school students with a current, formal school-based plan that meets College Board criteria will also have their accommodations automatically approved.
To receive approval, the new policy requires school testing accommodation coordinators to verify that requested accommodations are in the student’s education plan and that the student uses those accommodations for school testing.
