Are you a special education student? 
Do you receive 504 accommodations? 
Please note that accommodations for standardized exams like the PSAT/SAT/AP Exams need to be requested directly through the CollegeBoard for PSAT/SAT/AP.  There is a similar process for the ACT exam.  
IEP accommodations will not be provided automatically for students that do not have College Board Approved Services for Students with Disabilities.   It is the responsibility of each family/student to apply for those services (not the responsibility of the school).   Here is a link with more information about Services for Students with Disabilities:
SAT Digital Study
