Register for the SAT


We know this is a particularly stressful time if you’re applying for college, and the coronavirus has heightened this stress for many. To ensure we’re providing you opportunities to support your path to college, we want to remind you registration for the SAT is open to all students for the 2020-21 school year. This year, many centers will have fewer seats because of social distancing guidelines and may encounter unexpected closures. College Board is working with local high schools, colleges, and other sites to increase seating capacity in areas where registration is filling up.

If you can't find a nearby test center with availability on your preferred test date, be sure to check other dates. Change fees will be waived through the end of July should your plans change.

Colleges are rightfully being flexible with their application requirements. In some cases, they're extending deadlines and/or allowing students to submit scores after deadlines pass. Check college websites to get the most accurate information on their policies and deadlines.

Colleges are now:

Accepting scores as late as possible in their admissions process, especially by extending score deadlines for early action and early decision to take some pressure off and give students more time to test and send their scores.

Giving equal consideration for admission to students who are unable to take the exam due to the coronavirus as those who submitted scores. (The College Board will keep colleges up to date on testing availability.)

Recognizing that students who do submit scores may not have been able to take the test more than once (e.g., taking into account that students who tested as high school juniors but couldn't test as seniors would've likely achieved score gains).
