Schools and districts order all PSAT-related assessments on our ordering website. The easy-to-use tool walks users through a streamlined ordering process and provides up-to-date statuses for all orders on a single dashboard.
U.S. Schools: You Can Receive Materials Early
If you want to receive test materials early so students can fill out their identifying information before test day, choose our new pre-administration option on the test ordering website. For deadlines, go to PSAT 8/9 Dates.
Look for your access code in the registration announcement mailed to each school’s test coordinator in April. Contact us if you’re not on our mailing list.
You can also get your code via email using our access code request form. If the information you provide in the form matches our records, we’ll send your access code.
Schools also need a College Board code to order the PSAT 8/9, even though codes weren’t needed to order ReadiStep™, which has been discontinued. Look up your school code.
When you sign in, you’ll be able to:
- Order standard test books
- Order nonstandard test formats (for students with disabilities)
- Request additional supervisor’s manuals and student guides
The PSAT 8/9 is offered to eighth- or ninth-grade students in the fall or spring. Schools and districts can choose a PSAT 8/9 test date within these testing windows:
- Fall: September 26, 2016 to January 27, 2017
- Spring: February 21 to April 14, 2017
- Fall: September 25, 2017 to January 26, 2018
- Spring: February 26 to April 27, 2018
Parents and Students
Students sign up for the PSAT 8/9 at school.
Fees are paid by schools. The cost to a student may be different if the school covers all or part of the cost. Students should check with their school to find out their test fees.
The 2016-17 fee for PSAT 8/9 test books is $10 each.
Test Formats for Students with Disabilities
After consulting with the SSD Coordinator, test coordinators order nonstandard test formats for students who need them.
Students do not need to have College Board approval to use nonstandard test materials when they take the PSAT 8/9. Note that 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:
- MP3 files
- Reader's script
New: District Ordering
Districts can sign in to the ordering website to choose test dates and order standard test materials for their schools. The site supports communications between districts and their schools, automatically notifying schools when districts place orders, providing an easy way for schools to request order changes from their districts, and enabling districts to send bulk emails to their schools.
