How can my student apply for testing accommodations for the SAT School Day test?

Students with disabilities and English learners may be eligible for testing accommodations and/or supports for the SAT School Day; however, the College Board requires schools to submit formal requests in advance. 

  • Students with disabilities who have testing accommodations documented in a 504 Plan or an individualized education program (IEP) may be eligible for testing accommodations on the SAT School Day. The College Board must approve a formal request for each student. If the student already has College Board accommodations approved from a previous PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, SAT, or AP test, then no further action is needed. Once instated, accommodations remain in place for all College Board testing. The Accommodations Process for College Board Testing webpage provides instructions on how to request College Board testing accommodations, including the required input and consent forms (Enclosures 2-3). 
  • English learners (ELs), as defined by state and federal policy, are eligible for testing supports on the SAT School Day. EL supports are temporary and can only be used on the test date for which they have been requested. The EL Supports Process for College Board Testing webpage provides instructions on how to request College Board EL supports, including the required input and consent forms (Enclosures 5-6).

To request new or amended College Board testing accommodations and/or to request SAT School Day EL supports, return the related input and consent forms to the school by August 10, 2021. When returning forms, deliver to:

When will my student receive SAT scores?

Scores for the SAT School Day will be available online to students through their free College Board accounts 3-4 weeks after test day.   Students can view scores via College Board at https://studentscores.collegeboard.org/home.  Students who do not currently have a College Board account will need to create one to view scores.  

What should my student bring to school on SAT School Day?

Students will need Number 2 pencils (not mechanical) and a graphing calculator for the SAT.  Madison will not provide pencils or calculators on test day. It is also recommended that students bring a snack to eat during breaks. 

I have a question that is not listed above – who should I contact?
