Accommodating Testing - ACT

ACT is committed to serving students with disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations appropriate to the student's diagnosis. ACT has established policies regarding documentation of an applicant's disability and the process for requesting accommodations.
 
Special accommodations must be applied for in advance and approval is made at the discretion of the ACT. When all documentation is in place, Homewood-Flossmoor will submit an application on the behalf of the student.
 
  There are Three Ways Accommodated Students May Take the ACT
