Overview and Eligibility

Students that need accommodations should not register for an ISEE test date until they receive an accommodations decision via email.
The formal review and approval process can take up to two weeks once your completed accommodations request is received. Approved accommodation(s) are valid for 15 months from the date of approval. Any accommodations that your student receives are not flagged on the ISEE Score Report.
Requests are not reviewed until both a copy of the supporting documentation and the current school statement form have been received. Accommodations requests are reviewed in the order in which they are received. Students who are eligible for accommodations must:
Have a diagnosed disability that necessitates accommodation(s).
Have complete and current documentation that establishes a need for the requested accommodation(s).
Due to a disability, is granted and utilizes the requested accommodation(s) on a regular basis in his or her current academic setting as a necessity for demonstrating true aptitude.
Students recovering from a temporary disability such as a broken arm or concussion do not qualify for testing accommodations on the ISEE. Please consider testing at a later date.
