Testing Accommodations

All applications for accommodations for the 2016-2017 testing year expired July 31, 2017.
Accommodations required for testing in 2017-18 must be applied for and approved
on or after August 1, 2017.

Testing accommodations must be approved prior to test registration.
At the time of registration, these accommodations must be applied to the
test registration by checking the appropriate box.

We are committed to ensuring that test takers with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations when taking the SSAT. We also offer the opportunity for Sunday testing to accommodate those who cannot test on Saturday due to religious observance. 

Please note that it is the responsibility of a student's family to provide all
equipment, materials, and personnel necessary to support approved accommodations.
For more information, please refer to the Testing Accommodation Guide for Students, below.
