*Although the deadlines for the October SAT and the PSAT/NMSQT are not until August, we recommend beginning the process in the spring, well before the summer recess.

If your school is participating in a school-day SAT or PSAT, please refer to the information provided by your State Department of Education for specific details regarding documentation deadlines.

In some cases when documentation is not required, accommodation requests submitted after the deadline might be decided before test day. However, there is no guarantee that accommodations will be approved and test materials shipped in time for the test.
