Students who are approved for testing accommodations prior to post-secondary transition may find the continuation of testing accommodations useful for their post-secondary endeavors at the collegiate and graduate level.  Students who have been previously approved for testing accommodations are often encouraged to seek similar accommodations while taking standardized tests for professional certification and post-secondary school admission.  While the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) offers certain protections for people with disabilities or health-related needs to access testing accommodations, the approval process and procedures at the institutional level and for standardized testing can be involved, lengthy, and require specific documentation.  Standardized tests often are administered by different companies who have separate guidelines from previously filed documentation with specific institutions.  Some testing companies or institutions may require updated disability documentation.  It is important to begin your approval process in advance of your intended acceptance date or target testing date.  Below are listed links for common standardized testing accommodation webpages and some informational websites.

Some helpful information provided by LINS:

  • Involve a diagnosing professional early.  Seek out neuropsychological testing to document areas of disability early.
  • Apply for testing accommodations early.  LINS can help fill out supporting documentation if needed and help maintain early timelines.  If you receive a denial, there may be time for you to submit additional materials for an appeal.
