ACT provides access to the ACT® test through appropriate accommodations based on the examinee's diagnosis and needs. ACT has established policies regarding documentation of an examinee’s disability and approves accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

ACT also uses the following guiding principles in responding to requests for accommodations on the ACT:

  1. FairRequirements and procedures for test accommodations must ensure fairness for all examinees, both those seeking accommodations and those testing under standard conditions.
  2. ConsistentAccommodations must be consistent with ADA requirements and appropriate and reasonable for the documented disability.
  3. ValidAccommodations must not result in an undue burden, as that term is used under the ADA, or fundamentally alter that which the test is designed to measure.
  4. ProfessionalDocumentation of the diagnosis must meet guidelines that are considered to be appropriate by qualified professionals and must provide evidence that the person’s impairment substantially limits one or more major life activities. Applicants must also provide information about current and/or prior accommodations made in similar settings, such as in academic classes and other testing situations.

SAT Disability Services:

If you have a documented disability, you may be eligible for accommodations when you take the SAT 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).

College Board Approval Required

Accommodations must be approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities for students taking the SAT (as well as other College Board tests including, but not limited to,  SAT Subject Tests, and AP Exams). Scores will be canceled if accommodations are used without College Board approval.

Start Early

It can take up to 7 weeks for accommodations to be approved. If you plan to take the SAT 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.
