Get bulk registration dates here.

Get Labels Early

To get labels early for paper administrations and have more time for a preadministration session, order during an early registration window.

Contract States Might Not Follow These Schedules

If your state has a contract to administer the SAT or a PSAT-related assessment, check with your department of education for relevant dates.

Digital Deadlines Differ

If you're giving a digital test, upload your initial file at least three weeks before test day. Student data that's successfully submitted appears in the digital testing platform the next day. If students enter or leave your school, you have until the day before test day to upload a full replacement or an add-on file.
