Applying for Accommodations

If a student currently receives accommodations at Saint Ann’s due to a formally diagnosed and documented learning difference, s/he is eligible to apply for testing accommodations. There are two separate application processes; one for tests administered by College Board, and one for tests administered by ACT. Thus, having been approved for the latter does not mean that you are guaranteed approval on the former and vice versa.

**Please note, when applying for testing accommodations through these organizations, there is no guarantee that your child’s application will be automatically approved. The College Board and the ACT have, of late, become much more stringent in their interpretation of the severity of impact of a learning disability or other health impairment on a child’s academic performance.


Initial Steps

In order to initiate the process, the student or parents of the student must:

  1. Download the appropriate accommodations form (see specific tests below)
  2. Complete the student information sections (applicable to ACT forms only)
  3. Have both student and parent sign the forms
  4. Submit forms to Sarah Drake, Testing Accommodations Coordinator
