Accommodated Testing

During your time at SDSU, you may be expected to take tests and exams in several categories, including quizzes, tests and finals that are part of your classroom experiences, University placement and competency tests such as the ELM, MPT and WPA and possibly National Tests, such as the L-SAT for entrance into law school.

For students already registered with SASC and are looking for information regarding testing accommodations during the Spring 2021 semester, please visit our informational webpage for Testing Accommodations during SDSU Flex.

Classroom Tests

Through appropriate Student Ability Success Center (SASC) authorization, students with documented disabilities may utilize classroom test accommodations at the Calpulli Center test facility.  This may include extended test time, readers, writers, tests in alternative format, or a quiet testing environment.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Be enrolled as an SDSU student and currently registered with Student Ability Success Center
  • Have specific documentation of disability-related need and authorization of accommodating testing
  • Read and follow the Procedures for Receiving Test Accommodations packet that you received from your SASC Counselor

Requesting Service

Once you have been authorized to receive test accommodations and satisfy eligibility requirements, visit the Test Accommodation Center in Calpulli Center 1300. If you have any questions, please contact the Test Accommodation Center at 619-594-2643 or by email at

University exams

SASC students can register for SDSU Campus tests through the online system of Student Testing, Assessment and Research and, if currently authorized, receive SASC accommodations. There are no SASC tests listed, but if a student's SDSU Red ID number and personal information are entered to register for a campus test (by the registration deadline date), a test with accommodations will automatically be offered.

National exams

SASC may be able to assist in requesting accommodations (similar to those that you receive for SDSU exams) for national exams such as the GRE, Praxis, and LSAT.  Check the test's application booklet for deadlines and procedures for requesting accommodations.

Download, complete, and submit the Accommodation Request for National Exams. (Please submit to Student Ability Success Center in Calpulli 3101.) Please allow at least 72 hours (3 working days) for your request to be processed through SASC.
