Do separate accommodations requests need to be submitted for students who will be taking digital AP Exams?

Students who have received approval for accommodations from the College Board SSD office generally don’t need to submit any additional requests. For example, a student approved for a human reader doesn’t require additional/new approvals to test using a screen reader with a digital exam. However, if a student needs to take a digital exam using a human reader or human writer/scribe, their SSD coordinator must submit a request in SSD Online for this accommodation by January 18, 2024. 

Students receive specific digital exam formats enabled for their accommodation if they’re approved for extended time, breaks (extra, extended, breaks as needed), or if they’re approved for an accommodation that requires an accessible format of the exam; for instance, students approved for assistive technology or braille, will receive an accessible format that will be compatible with assistive technology such as screen reader software, voice recognition software, or refreshable braille displays.
