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.
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.
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
- Request PSAT/NMSQT fee waivers for 11th-graders
Schools and districts choose a PSAT 10 test date within a spring testing window:
- 2017: February 21 to April 14, 2017
- 2018: February 26 to April 27, 2018
To see deadlines for SSD requests and more, go to PSAT 10 Dates.
Parents and Students
Students sign up for the PSAT/NMSQT and the PSAT 10 at school.
The PSAT/NMSQT is offered to 10th- and 11th-graders in the fall. Test day options for 2017:
- Regular test day: Wednesday, October 11
- Saturday test day: October 14
- Alternate test day: Wednesday, October 25
We encourage all schools to test on October 11 if possible. Doing so provides schools and districts with the most robust data and reports and helps simplify logistics for schools giving multiple assessments or testing multiple grades on the same day.
Schools typically choose the alternate test date to accommodate religious holidays and school breaks. If your school arranges to test on the alternate date but is unable to at the last minute (due to a snow day, for example), there is no opportunity to test at a later time.
If your school’s participation was arranged by your state or district, check with them to see if any test date restrictions apply.
Fees are paid by schools. The cost to a student may be different if the student is in 11th grade and qualifies for a fee waiver or if the school covers all or part of the cost. Students should check with their school to find out their test fees.
In 2017-18, the fee for PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 test books is $16 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 must have College Board approval to use nonstandard test materials when they take the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, SAT, and AP Exams.
The following formats can be ordered online:
- MP3 files
- Reader's script
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. This provides an easy way for schools to request order changes from their districts and enables districts to send bulk emails to their schools.
