    Hi,
    I was told by one of my friends also applying for the NROTC program that you can't submit an SAT with accommodations. I took my first SAT with my accommodations which was time and a half on each sections. I'm planning on taking the next SAT on May 6th with accommodations, but now I am not sure if I have to take it without the accommodations. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    With luck, one of the experienced NROTC posters will address your specific question about the SAT and accommodations as it relates to NROTC.

    At some point, midshipmen and cadets in officer accession programs submit medical histories. DODMERB Qs or DQs per the accession standard. The Services waive or don't waive a DQ per their individual policy.

    Here is the reference for officer accessions. Skim to pages 46-47.

    I believe that to be the case but I can't swear to it. What's more important, perhaps, is the reason for the accommodation. That would be more important.

    I received the extra time with my IEP I have because it takes me a little longer to read.

    Because....? You don't need to answer it, you just need to know the underlying condition/reason may be problematic.

    Does this also count for applying to a college and not the naval Academy?

    Check with each school, but I believe most colleges do accept tests with accomodations. As far as service academies, the question is (as kinnem said) - what is the underlying medical reason for the accomodation - dyslexia, ADHD, etc.?

    Can you do practice tests to improve your time so that you can take off the accomodation request?

    You're highly unlikely to receive a medical waiver for NROTC if you have an active IEP/testing accomodations and are using them.
