CLEP Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

If you have a learning or physical disability that would prevent you from taking a CLEP exam under standard conditions, you may request accommodations at your preferred test center. Contact your preferred test center well in advance of the test date to make the necessary arrangements and to find out its deadline for submission of documentation for approval of accommodations. SATC requires requests for accommodations two weeks prior to testing date.

Accomodations that can be arranged directly with test centers include:

  • ZoomText (screen magnification)
  • Modifiable screen colors
  • Use of a reader, a scribe, or a sign language interpreter
  • Extended time
  • Untimed rest breaks

If the above accommodations do not meet your needs, contact CLEP Services for information about other nonstandard options at clep@info.collegeboard.org or at 800-257-9558 before you register through My Account.

DSST Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Examinees requiring special accommodations will need to contact DSST at http://getcollegecredit.com/ prior to testing. In order to allow sufficient time for the review of each case and the arrangement of appropriate accommodations, the request with the appropriate documentation must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the desired test date. After the request and documentation are received, Prometric's ADA Committee will review the request. Prometric will make every effort to provide the necessary accommodations, within reason, in as timely a manner as possible. The candidate will be contacted in writing with a confirmation of approval or denial of the requested accommodation.
