What is Direct Access for accommodations?

July 30, 2021

If your student's request meets ALL THREE of the following criteria, you do NOT need to submit documentation when applying for testing accommodations:

A. Your student's indicated approver is a representative from her/his school

B. The documentation your approver has on file is one of the following:

+ An Individualized Education Program (IEP)

+ A Section 504 Accommodation Plan

+ A Private School Service Plan or other formal documentation outlining your student's educational testing needs

C. All requested testing accommodations are associated with your student's disabilities.

Applications must also not have any information manually entered into the "Other" form fields for disability type or accommodations requested.

It's easy to know if your student is eligible for direct access when applying for accommodations. If the online form indicates that you do not need to provide documentation, you are eligible for Direct Access!
