Getting Access to SSD Online

To use SSD Online and to submit requests for accommodations, schools must designate one or more SSD Coordinators, school officials who assume the responsibilities related to requesting testing accommodations on College Board exams.

SSD Coordinators are often special education coordinators, guidance directors, or school counselors. Schools may have more than one SSD Coordinator if multiple staff members will be requesting accommodations.

For Educator Use

Only approved educators can use SSD Online; parents and students can benefit from it by working with their school to request accommodations. Get an overview of the request process >

Other SSD Coordinator Responsibilities

Each school’s primary SSD Coordinator will also be considered the school’s Testing Coordinator for in-school College Board testing. When schools administer in-school tests, primary SSD Coordinators are responsible for the following:

  • Receiving and securing tests
  • Generating testing rosters
  • Producing Nonstandard Administration Reports for school-based testing.

The primary SSD Coordinator should also submit the School Testing Calendar (.pdf/328KB) annually, notifying the College Board of the dates on which they can administer in-school SATs to their own students. Learn more about administering exams with accommodations.

If parents and students want to request accommodations on their own, SSD Coordinators should provide them with a paper Student Eligibility Form and instructions for completing the form. The College Board provides schools with these forms. They cannot be downloaded or photocopied. Only a sample of the form is available online. To request more, contact SSD.

If your contact information changes, update the SSD Coordinator Form (.pdf/216KB).
