Testing Supports for English Language Learners

To make the PSAT 8/9 even more accessible to students, the College Board has worked with educators to provide testing supports for English language learners (ELL).

As of January 1, 2017, ELL students taking the PSAT 8/9 have access to testing instructions in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Vietnamese. We’ve also provided a list of approved word-for-word glossaries that students may use on test day.

Supervisors planning for test day should print the translations and provide a copy for each ELL student. Schools may also provide copies of the approved glossaries.

Go to the Resource Library to download translated instructions and the glossaries list.

Look Up Your School Code

To offer the PSAT 8/9, your school needs an active six-digit College Board school code. Schools that offer the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP have one. If you need a code, call 609-771-7091.
