We also offer the opportunity for Sunday testing to accommodate those who cannot test on Saturday due to religious observance. Please note that all accommodations approved for the 2015-2016 testing year expired as of July 31, 2016.  Accommodations required for testing in 2016-2017 must be applied for and approved prior to registering for the SSAT.
