Important Upcoming Dates for SAT/PSAT
- January 15 – February 12, 2019: SAT Essay Student Registration Window
Students will need to register for this optional test through their own student account.
- January 22 – February 1, 2019: Materials Review Window
PSAT and SAT materials will be automatically ordered for each school based on October Count data. This window is when school Test Coordinators can get in touch with College Board if that count is inaccurate. The easiest way to notify College Board of this will be to call their Colorado School Day Line at (866) 917-9030.
There are three types of accommodations that can be requested for student tests, and each type has their own request window.
- State-Allowed Accommodations | Now – March 4, 2019
For accommodations documented in student’s IEP and 504 plans. Students with these accommodations will receive scores but these scores are not reportable to colleges and scholarship programs.
- College Board-Approved Accommodations | Now – February 19, 2019
College Board-approved accommodations are designed for students with documented disabilities and must be approved in advance by the College Board. Students who are approved for accommodations by the College Board will receive college- and scholarship-reportable scores.
- Extended Time for English Learners | January 25 – March 4, 2019
EL students may use 50% extended time support for SAT or PSAT testing. Offered as an option for EL students who receive extended time as an instructional support. Scores will be scholarship- and/or college-reportable and must be requested for each state administration. Advance request is required through SSD Online. To use EL supports, students must be classified either as Non-English Proficient (NEP) or Limited English Proficient (LEP).
