Electronic Score Reporting

beginning of content:

All SAT and SAT Subject Test scores are reported on paper or electronically in the higher education assessment reporting portal. You’ll sign in to the portal using the same College Board account you use for other College Board applications, such as College Board Search.

Electronic score files are delivered on a rolling basis through the Download Center. You’ll receive them in the format specified on your annual options form: comma-delimited or fixed-width. If you need to change your SAT preferences, email us.

New Data Layout

The new electronic data layout, introduced in October 2015, includes these changes:

  • Expanded layout showing scores for both the redesigned SAT and the old SAT, given before March 2016.
  • Changes to SAT Subject Test codes. SAT Subject Tests and scores have not changed.
  • Date fields moved to YYYY-MM-DD format.
  • Some alphabetic codes were revised to be numeric.
  • Changes to the collection of race and ethnicity data, and other demographic data.
  • Some fields were regrouped.

Paper Reports Available

Colleges now receive scores electronically or on paper. Colleges that previously received score report CDs were automatically updated to electronic delivery in the annual preferences mailing. Contact us to switch to paper if electronic score delivery can't be supported.

Data Layout Resources

Review these documents to become familiar with the new data layout. We recommend naming a project leader from admission or enrollment to manage implementation of the new data layout.
