SAT Test Dates and Registration

The SAT is a nationally administered, standardized paper-and-pencil test that helps colleges evaluate candidates.

Generally, you'll take the SAT for the first time in the spring of your junior year, and scores typically come back in four weeks. This allows you enough time to retake the test during the summer or fall if you're not satisfied with your score.

In order to register for the SAT, you must sign up for a College Board account. You must also have a photo ID, as well as a photo of yourself that can be uploaded to the registration site. You will also need access to a printer to print out your SAT admission ticket. You will not be allowed into the testing center without a valid ID and a printout of your ticket.

SAT Fee Waivers

Are you eligible to take the SAT for free? Certain 11th- and 12th-grade students who meet income-based eligibility criteria may be able to apply for a fee waiver. See the test maker’s website for more information.

To learn more about upcoming SAT exam dates and registration deadlines, visit the College Board or speak with your high school counselor.
