Students and parents/guardians generally work with their school to request accommodations and provide information to College Board. When requesting accommodations online, schools must certify they have parental consent from the parent/guardian of any student under 18 to provide information and must keep this information in their records. When a paper Student Eligibility Form is used to request accommodations, the parent/guardian must indicate on the form they consent to the request/release of information. Students 18 and over may sign the forms themselves. Visit our Services for Students with Disabilities page to learn more.
If a student requests a test accommodation for a disability through our Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD), we’ll use the information we collect from the student, including personal data revealing a mental or physical health condition or diagnosis, to evaluate and respond to the request. Upon student consent (or their parent/guardian if under age 18), College Board may discuss the student’s disability and needs with school personnel (including the school they attend and the school where the College Board test(s) may be administered to the student) and other professionals. We’ll also use student contact information to communicate with the student and third parties (their school, doctors, etc.) if the student authorizes us to.
Students requesting EL supports must demonstrate their EL status. Students and parents/guardians generally work with their school to provide this information to College Board. For more information, visit our EL Testing Supports page.
