After Test Day

beginning of content:

The test might be over, but test coordinators still have a few to-dos.

Returning Materials

Using the provided shipping labels and boxes, coordinators must pack test materials so they can be picked up and returned. We'll send an email confirming the date and time of your UPS pickup.

Paying for the Test

Calculating Payment

How much schools pay depends on factors including these quantities:

  • Tests ordered
  • Tests used
  • Fee reductions applied

Helping SAT School Day Students Get SAT Fee Waiver Benefits

When schools identify fee reduction–eligible students in SAT School Day rosters, those students can automatically access benefits for the SAT through their College Board accounts.

Follow these steps to identify fee reduction–eligible students:

  1. Sign in to the test ordering site.
  2. Complete the “School Info” section.
  3. Review the top table, which displays the total number of fee reduction benefits your school can use.
  4. Review fee reduction eligibility criteria to better understand which students can get fee reductions.
  5. By the deadline, check off the individual students who qualify for fee reduction benefits. (Tip: Filter and sort the data to efficiently find the correct students.)
  6. Review your work and submit.

Remind students to take these steps so they get their benefits:

  1. Create a College Board account.
  2. Start registering for the SAT. (Don’t worry, students don't need to complete the entire registration to receive fee reduction benefits. They should simply fill out the first two sections, up until "Demographics," and click Cancel or Save and Return.)
  3. Complete Step 1 (called "Update Personal Info") of SAT registration.
  4. Complete the first page of Step 2 (the "Demographics" section within the "Create Student Profile" step) and then click Cancel. (Students may choose to complete the entire profile, but it's not required to receive benefits.)
  5. Accept the terms of the fee reduction eligibility popup prompt when returning to the My SAT homepage.

Note: A student's fee reduction benefits will not become active until they accept the benefits. See the full list of benefits.
