How to Apply for Accommodations on any College Board Test
To apply for accommodations on any College Board Test (AP or SAT) your student must:
- Have an active accommodation plan at Delaware County Christian School.
- Have current testing documentation (within the past five years) on file at Delaware County Christian School
- Submit the following form to the Guidance Office. (Consent Form for Request for Accommodations)
- Once you submit the form, the Guidance Office will send the necessary paperwork to College Board.

College Board can take as many as 6-8 weeks to review accommodation requests, so please submit your requests as early as possible. I recommend that you apply by the end of sophomore year in order to have all accommodations ready by the PSAT in October of junior year.
