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.

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.

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