ACT Test Accommodations
ACT has introduced an online Test Accessibility and Accommodations System (TAA) that is now available to submit requests for accommodations for students testing in fall 2016 and beyond. With the new system, students who apply for accommodations on the ACT will be able to complete their registration online and then work with their counselor to request accommodations. Through TAA, school officials will not only submit accommodations requests for students who attend their school but will have the ability to monitor each examinee’s request status, access decision notifications and request reconsideration, if necessary.
Previously, we could submit the request and register each student for the desired date. With the implementation of this system, we will no longer be accepting paper applications for accommodations. The student will need to log on to www.actstudent.org and register for a test. During the registration process, the student will be asked if they need accommodations to access our test. They will say yes and then choose “special testing” which is extended time over multiple days. Approximately 48 hours after the registration has been completed, the student will receive an email that they will need to forward on to the school so that the school can request accommodations for the student.
