Changing Your Registration Information

beginning of content:

Mistakes happen and schedules change, which is why you can often change registration information and test dates after you’ve registered.

There are some limits as to what can be changed and when, and there are fees associated with certain changes.

You may be able to get a refund if you are canceling your registration.

Important: Print an updated Admission Ticket if you change any registration information.

What You Can Change and When

Name, Date of Birth, and Gender

How: Contact Customer Service.

Why: You won’t be able to take the test if any of this information on your Admission Ticket is wrong.

Deadline: No later than 8 p.m. ET on the Monday five days prior to your test date, but don’t wait until the last minute: These changes often require sending documentation and take longer to process.

Fee: No.

Test Date, Test Center, and Test Type (SAT to SAT Subject Tests or vice versa)

How: Through your College Board My Organizer account.

Deadline: Check your Admission Ticket.

Fee: Yes.


  • You can add, subtract, or switch Subject Tests on test day, within limits — you don’t have to make the change ahead of time. There’s no change fee. Learn more.
  • Students who have registered with a fee waiver may change to a new test date, but they will be charged the test date change fee.


How: Through your College Board My Organizer account.

Why: Photo does not meet test center requirements.

Deadline: Up to five days before the published test date.

Fee: No.

Important: Being able to upload a photo does not mean it meets these photo requirements. Centers will turn you away on test day if your photo does not meet these standards.

Address, High School Information, Score Reports

How: Through your College Board My Organizer account.

Why: Information is incorrect or you change the colleges you send scores to.

Deadline: It is usually nine days after the day you took the test — check your Admission Ticket.

Fee: No.

Update and Print Your Admission Ticket

The Admission Ticket you bring on test day must be up to date, so if you make any changes you’ll need to update and reprint it. You could be denied entry to the test if your Admission Ticket isn’t an exact match to the test center roster.

Here’s how to update and print your ticket:

  1. Sign into My Organizer.
  2. Click Print/Update Ticket.
  3. Use a credit card or PayPal to cover any fees or charges.
  4. Print your updated Admission Ticket.

Mailed-In Registrations Can Be Changed

Changes Allowed on Test Day

On test day, students can generally change which SAT Subject Tests they are taking. However, there are some exceptions, such as for Language with Listening Tests or if you’re testing with certain accommodations. Learn more.

Students who received late approval of SSD accommodations normally given in the center may be able to change from standard testing to testing with accommodations if space, staff, and materials are available.

Learn what to do if you’re absent on test day, if the test center is unexpectedly closed, and more at Test Day Mishaps.

Students Testing with Accommodations

Students with disabilities who have been approved to test with accommodations that require them to test at their school under the supervision of the SSD Coordinator need to make changes through their SSD Coordinators and the Services for Students with Disabilities office.
