Students taking the Math or Writing Placement Assessments may request accommodations due to their documented disability. Typical accommodations include but are not limited to: extended time, private room, accessible desk, etc. Students are expected to complete the Writing Placement Asssessment prior to Orientation, and students can sit for the Math Placement Assessment at Orientation. Students may be asked to transfer the math placement exam to an alternate testing date if the request for accommodations requires additional/extensive coordination.

In order to be considered for accommodations for the placement assessments, students must submit a Placement Test Accommodation Request Form form at least one week in advance of their scheduled orientation date. Documentation of the student’s disability must be included with the request form. Individualized Education Plans, 504 Plans, documentation from a high school regarding accommodations, and documentation from a qualified health professional are examples of appropriate documentation. 

Please note: accommodations for the placement assessments are temporary accommodations; approved accommodations are only applicable for these exams. In order to receive accommodations for the regular academic year, students must register with SAC. The formal registration process with SAC may require additional documentation of your disability. Information about how to register with SAC can be found here.
