All SAT exams on June 6th have been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. If deemed safe for students, the College Board plans to administer SAT exams every month from August to December on weekends. In addition, there will be a new test date added in September. The SAT is still scheduled to be offered August 29th, October 3rd, November 7th, and December 5th.

Due to widespread school closings and the uncertainty of when schools will open again, the College Board is focusing on administering exams outside of school campuses. The College Board is working on a digital take-at-home version of the SAT in case exams cannot be offered to students in person.

The expectation is that these tests will be offered free of charge to students. Students with approved fee waivers and a need for test accommodations will continue to have their needs honored.

The College Board is working with testing sites to allow larger number of students to take the SAT at each testing session. Registration for exams will start in May. If you registered for the June exam, you will be granted early registration for the August, September, and October test dates. Early registration will also be extended to 2021 high school graduates who have yet to take the SAT.

The PSAT exams offered to students in grade 8, 9, and 10th have not been rescheduled.

Any and all questions that students may have can be directed to the email address: sat@info.collegeboard.org or by calling 1-866-756-7346.
