Score Release Dates

Most SAT scores are released about two weeks after test day. June scores take longer, up to six weeks. Find out when scores will be released.

Important Information

U.S. deadlines apply to students testing in the United States and U.S. territories.

  • U.S. registration materials that are mailed must be postmarked by the U.S. deadlines. The deadlines expire at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, U.S.
  • Additional fees apply if you register late, change your test center, change your test date, or switch from taking the SAT to taking a Subject Test after registering. Find out how to make registration changes and get deadlines.
  • Sunday administrations usually occur the day after each Saturday test date for students who cannot test on Saturday due to religious observance. Please note this exception: Sunday testing for the October 3, 2020 SAT will be held October 18, 2020.
  • If you miss the late registration deadline, you may be able to get on the waitlist.
  • Your registration options will be limited if you aren't taking the SAT for one of its main purposes.
