  • Q: My child has an accommodation to receive extended time on exams.  How is this handled?

    In order to receive accommodations for an ISEE Admission test, please contact ISEE directly for a list of available facilities. Please note that ISEE requires approximately 5 weeks to review and approve all accommodation requests.

    Students requesting ISEE accommodations will submit the required paperwork to ERB for review/approval at least 5 weeks in advance of a test date.   ERB will require a copy of the supporting documentation which details the specific accommodation (Psychoeducational report, IEP, etc. dated within the past 3 years). 

    Please contact ISEE to request accommodation approval. ISEE will then email the family with further instructions required for them to review and approve the accommodation for the admission test. Once approved, ISEE will assist the family in locating a test site that offers the test with accommodations.
  • Q: What should I do if I need to cancel my test date?

    If for some reason you will not be taking the ISEE after registering for it, there is a rescheduling fee. For cancellation, there is a  cancellation fee if you cancel one day or more before the test date. In addition, there is no refund if you cancel on or after the test date.

    You may request the change or cancellation by calling the ISEE Operations Office at 1-800-446-0320.
