Accommodations Handbook

Accommodated Testing Timeline and Deadlines

It is important to understand that there are separate timelines and deadlines for:

A.   Having your student’s accommodations approved (must be done first!), and

B.  Registering for the SSAT

Please be advised that registration for accommodated testing on any Standard test date will close 14 days prior to the scheduled test date. This registration deadline allows all accommodated testing materials to be packed and shipped out to designated test centers with adequate time to identify enough proctors and testing space for all students. If you need assistance finding an accommodated testing seat in your area, please contact us at

If you have any questions or concerns about your family's ability to provide anything needed for your student to complete testing, please contact EMA immediately and well in advance of your scheduled test date.
