Accommodations Handbook

SSAT At Home Accommodated Testing Registration

Registration for all SSAT at Home administrations will remain open up until 24 hours prior to each scheduled test date/time; however, all SSAT at Home test dates are subject to availability as there is a limit to the number of seats available for registration on each scheduled test date. As a result, EMA cannot guarantee availability based on attempting to schedule an SSAT at Home greater than 24 hours in advance of a preferred test date

Similar to Prometric testing with accommodations, following the completion of registration for an SSAT At-Home offering, the registration will become locked; however, this type of registration is slightly more flexible.

  • Any accommodation that does not impact the timing of the test may be added to or removed from an existing SSAT at Home test registration in the lead-up to test day; however, if wishing to change from one timing schedule to another (i.e. standard time to 50% additional time), the student's registration will need to be canceled out and re-registered with the appropriate accommodations. Testing may need to be moved to an alternate test date if no available seating remains for the original date at the time of cancellation.

On test day, the virtual proctor overseeing a student's test administration will NOT confirm all accommodations approved for testing. If there is confusion regarding what is approved or what will be permitted during testing, the parent/student should ask the proctor during the check-in process. It is best to double-check approved accommodations and the rules and regulations for each in advance of test day. All rules and regulations for common accommodations can be found in the corresponding section below.
