Request Exam Accommodations
You can work with your school’s SSD coordinator to request accommodations for taking your AP Exams.
If you have a documented disability that affects how you test, you may be eligible for accommodations on the AP Exams such as:
- Braille exam format
- Assistive technology–compatible (ATC) exam format
- Large-print exam format
- Extended time
- Extra breaks
- Large-block answer sheets
- Permission to use a computer for typing essays
- Permission to use a magnification device (electronic or non-electronic)
- A human reader to dictate questions
- A writer/scribe to record responses
- A written copy of oral instructions
Accommodations are also available if you plan to take a digital AP Exam. For instance, if you’re approved for extended time, you’ll receive a digital exam with the appropriate amount of time automatically applied; if you’re approved for a human reader, you’ll receive a digital exam compatible with screen reader software. Talk to your AP coordinator and SSD coordinator if you have questions about how your approved accommodations will work for a digital AP Exam.
In order to receive accommodations, you or your school’s SSD coordinator must request them from College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office.
Below is an overview of the accommodations process. Visit SSD Accommodations on College Board Exams for details.
