Registering for the SAT

Planning to take the SAT? Here are the test dates, registration deadlines, and fees for the 2018–2019 academic year.

The College Board administers the SAT as well as the AP exams, the SAT Subject Tests, and the PSAT. The first step in preparing for the SAT is to register for it. Here are some tips.

  1. Register as early as possible so that you'll have a chance to take the test again if you want to improve your score. You must register four weeks before the test date. The chart below includes upcoming test dates and registration deadlines.
  2. Register online at collegeboard.org. It's the fastest and easiest way to register. From your online account you can print your admission ticket, make changes to your registration, and view your scores as soon as they are available. You can also register by mail through your school counselor.
  3. Decide if you want to receive mail from colleges. If you enroll in College Board's Student Search Service, you'll receive mail from colleges looking to recruit students, as well as from scholarship providers and test prep companies.
  4. Pay your fees or apply for a fee waiver. Fees for the SAT are $47.50 and $64.50 with the essay. Fees include the cost of sending your scores to up to four colleges (additional colleges are $12 each). For a complete list of fees, as well as more information about registration, fee waivers, and the test itself, visit collegeboard.org.
  5. Submit a photo. You must submit a photo of yourself with your SAT registration. You'll find the complete photo submission guidelines on collegeboard.org. (If your photo doesn't meet the requirements, you may not be allowed to test.)

Your SAT Scores and Score Reports

Your test scores will be available online about two weeks after you take the test. If you took the Essay, those scores will arrive about five days later. About 10 days after all your scores have been released to you, they'll be sent to your colleges. Your score report will include your combined score and your score by test section. With College Board's Score Choice, you can send your best scores from a single test date to your colleges. Otherwise, the College Board will automatically send all your scores. For more information about Score Choice, visit the College Board.

Once you've registered for the SAT, you can sit back, relax—and start studying! Good luck!
