The test might be over, but test coordinators still have a few to-dos.
It's critical to return all answer sheets to the College Board no later than the next school day after test day. Failing to do so could:
- Delay scoring
- Prevent PSAT/NMSQT takers from entering the National Merit™ Scholarship Program
Schools must return test books for the following administrations:
- PSAT/NMSQT Saturday test day
- All PSAT 10 dates
Delays in returning test books will lead to your scores being put on hold, pending further investigation. Please consult your coordinator manual for detailed instructions on return shipments.
Paying for the Test
Schools order tests and send payments to the College Board; students do not.
Schools pay these fees:
- PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10 test books: $17
- Unused test books: $4 for each unused test book exceeding 20 percent of the total ordered
- 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 in the score reporting portal.
How much schools pay depends on factors, including quantities of the following:
- Tests ordered
- Tests used
- Fee waivers applied
