Accommodations Handbook

Sunday Testing for the Standard Paper Test

1. Log in to your student’s account, click the “SSAT Testing” button and then the “Apply for / View My Accommodations” tab.

2. Next, click the “Click to Apply for Sunday Testing” button to be taken to the online application.

3. Provide contact information for an approver who is able to attest that:

  • Your student cannot test on a Saturday due to religious reasons (i.e. a member of the clergy, rabbi, etc.).

Sunday testing notes:

  • For students wishing to take the paper-based Standard test on Sunday, where available, before registering they must apply and be approved for Sunday Testing.  There is no requirement to be approved for Sunday Testing for students wishing to take a Flex test, an SSAT at Home, or a Prometric Test that occur on a Sunday.
  • The amount of time necessary to be approved for Sunday testing largely depends upon how quickly your indicated approver completes the required approval form and submits the required ID form for processing.
  • Changing Your Approver: If your approver is unresponsive to your request for testing accommodations, even after multiple contact attempts, you may select a different approver to serve in this role. If you wish to change the approver associated with your application for accommodations, you may do so within your online SSAT account by returning to your pending application for accommodations and clicking the “Change Approver” button. You will be asked to provide all contact information for the new approver before submitting. Be sure to double-check that the approver’s email address is entered accurately, to ensure they receive all information necessary to complete the online approval process. If you require assistance making this type of change, please contact us at info
  • The availability of Sunday testing is limited in many areas and cannot be guaranteed for a student’s preferred test date or test site.
  • If you are having difficulty locating a Sunday testing site near you, please email as soon as possible so that we may help you identify a test site that can meet your testing needs within a reasonable distance.
  • If your student is in need of Sunday testing approval for any SSAT test date offered in Israel, please contact EMA at for assistance.
  • The approval for Sunday testing is only valid for the testing season in which it was approved (August 1 through July 31).
