Social Security NumberSome colleges and universities use Social Security numbers as student identifiers when assigning or tracking scores. While the College Board does not require you to provide your Social Security number, you may want to check with the college or university where you are sending scores to see if they prefer for you to provide a Social Security number. Students do not need to bring the actual card with them on testing day; however they CANNOT guess at the number.
Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD)Students who show that their disabilities affect participation in a College Board exam are eligible to take those exams with accommodations. All accommodations must be approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD).
