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: $12
  • Unused test books: $4 for each unused test book exceeding 20 percent of the total ordered
  • International shipping surcharge: $8/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 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.
