Ordering Tests

beginning of content:

Schools order all PSAT-related assessments on our test ordering site. The easy-to-use site walks users through a streamlined ordering process and provides up-to-date statuses for all orders on a single dashboard.

Our test ordering site is now open. Please check this page for more up-to-date information and look for emails when ordering is open. Ordering for the fall PSAT 8/9 will be available in June, and ordering for the spring PSAT 8/9 will be available in late fall.

Borrowing Tests

Schools and districts must officially order PSAT 8/9 test materials to receive score reports after testing. Ordering reflects that your school has been approved for testing, that we have your correct mailing and contact information, and that your school has the correct materials to fairly administer tests.

Borrowing and lending is allowed for some test administrations, but schools using only borrowed materials won't get score reports.

Getting Access

Look for your access code in the registration announcement mailed to each school's principal in June. Contact us if you're not on our mailing list.

Schools also need a College Board code to order the PSAT 8/9. Look up your school code.

When you sign in, you'll be able to:

  • Order standard test books
  • Order accommodated test formats (for students with disabilities)
  • Request additional coordinator manuals

Test Formats for Students with Disabilities

After consulting with the SSD coordinator, test coordinators order accommodated test formats for students who need them.

Students don't need to have College Board approval to use accommodated test materials when they take the PSAT 8/9. Students who use accommodations to take the PSAT 8/9 will be required to apply for College Board approval to use accommodations when they take other College Board assessments, including, but not limited to, the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and AP Exams.

The following formats can be ordered online:

  • Braille
  • Large-print
  • Prerecorded audio streaming (formerly MP3 files)
  • Reader's script
