Online SAT Registration

You'll need to create an account to register online for the SAT. You can also use your online account to change your test date or location, reprint your Admission Ticket, and send your scores.

Create a free account now.

Usernames and passwords are case-sensitive, so if you have trouble signing in, be sure to use the same uppercase or lowercase letters you used when you first set up your username and password.

When you use different online services (such as SAT Registration and College Search), you'll be asked to sync up your accounts. If you've forgotten your old username and password, you can contact Customer Service.

When we're updating the site or performing routine maintenance, you may notice that online registration is running slowly or is temporarily unavailable. You should return later to begin your registration.

The best times to register are well before deadlines, in the early morning and afternoon, and on weekends. Peak times, when the site may be slower, include right before test days and registration deadlines.

If you have trouble printing your Admission Ticket you might not be using a supported internet browser.

If changing browsers doesn’t work, clear your browser’s cache and enable cookies. Refer to your browser’s online help for instructions.

If you’re able to print your ticket, but the text or photo is missing or garbled, try printing the ticket as an image. Here’s how:

  1. Use the most up-to-date Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  2. In Adobe Acrobat Reader click Print.
  3. When the print dialogue box opens, click Advanced.
  4. Check the Print as Image checkbox.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click the Print button.

Test Day

Find out what you need to bring with you on test day, what to leave at home, and what to expect. Go to:

Taking the Test: SAT

Taking the Tests: PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10

Taking the Test: PSAT 8/9

Accommodations are available for students with documented disabilities, but they must be approved by the College Board before test day or scores will be canceled. The process can take seven weeks, so start early.

Learn how to request accommodations through Services for Students with Disabilities.

Cheating is unfair to students who have put in the hard work and play by the rules, so if you see it or hear about it, report it. Contact the Office of Testing Integrity by phone at 833-435-7684 or by email at


Scores for the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, PSAT 8/9, and SAT Subject Tests are all online in one place.

If you registered for the SAT online or you registered by mail and set up a College Board account, you’ll get an email telling you how to sign into your online score report when scores are ready.

You can send four free reports to colleges every time you register for the SAT, but you need to do it within nine days after test day, unless you’re eligible for an SAT fee waiver.

In some cases, when you submit scores to one school within a college or university system, other schools within that system have access to your score. However, if you’re applying to more than one school within a college or university system, it’s still important to send your SAT scores to each individual school. If you’re not sure whether the specific school you’re applying to is part of such a system, contact the admission office.

If you know which schools you'd like to send your scores to and are comfortable sending your scores in the spring of your junior year, you should. Some colleges see this as a sign of interest. They may also use scores to see if you qualify for special campus visit programs, information sessions in your hometown, or scholarships.

There are a few reasons rush reporting can take longer than you expected: If you mailed your rush request to us, it may have taken several extra days for us to receive it and start processing. We can only rush report scores that have been released, so if your scores aren’t yet available, they wouldn’t have been sent. Learn more about rush reporting.

Use official concordance tables to compare SAT and ACT scores. You'll also find additional concordance tables to compare old and new SAT scores.

If you feel you didn't do your best, you can cancel your scores, but most students need to do it by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the Wednesday after your test date. Learn how to cancel scores.
