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 do not.

Fees

Schools pay these fees:

  • PSAT 8/9 test books: $11
  • Unused test books: $4 for each unused test book exceeding 20 percent of the total ordered
  • International shipping surcharge: $6/test
  • Extra set of score reports (optional): $100
  • Score labels (optional): $100

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 these quantities:

  • Tests ordered
  • Tests used

This information will be used to calculate your school's bill. The test ordering site will have details about how to send payment.

PSAT 8/9 Invoice Schedule

Starting in 2018-19, schools will no longer review invoice information immediately after test day. Here's the schedule:

  • Schools returning answer sheets before November 16: Starting December 3, sign in to the test ordering site to review answer sheet counts and complete grade-level adjustments.
  • Schools returning answer sheets after November 16: Roughly 6-8 weeks after you return answer sheets, sign in to the test ordering site to review answer sheet counts and complete grade-level adjustments.
