After Test Day

beginning of content:

The test might be over, but test coordinators still have a few to-dos.

Return Answer Sheets ASAP

It's critical to return answer sheets and unused materials to the College Board no later than the next school day after test day. Failing to do so could delay scoring.

Paying for the Test

Schools order tests and send payments to the College Board; students don't.

Fees

Schools pay the following fees:

  • PSAT 8/9 test books: $13
  • No charge for unused tests: Schools won't be charged test fees if they’re unable to administer SAT School Day, PSAT 8/9, and PSAT/NMSQT this fall. We understand the decision to test may not be made until closer to the administration dates; please adjust your test book volumes the best you can by the ordering deadlines for the week you plan on testing.
  • International shipping surcharge: $8 per test

Note: All schools receive one paper score report per student and can print additional score reports as well as score labels at no cost.

Calculating Payment

How much schools pay depends on factors, including quantities of the following:
