If you request rush service, your score reports will typically be sent to colleges within one to two business days (not counting holidays and weekends). Additional score report fees (as described above) still apply on rush orders.

Scores by phone

Scores by phone are released according to the same schedule as online scores. This service does not send scores to colleges any earlier.

To get your score by phone, call Customer Service. You'll need your test registration number (printed on your admission ticket), your birth date, a credit card number, and the card's expiration date.

Archived (older) scores order

If you want your old test scores, you should request archived scores. You can request them by phone or mail. The standard fee for additional score report requests applies to each score report you'd like to include with your order.

SAT Question-and-Answer Service*

This service provides the test questions from the specified test you took, the correct answers, scoring instructions, and a form you can use to order a copy of your answer sheet.

The QAS service is not available for every SAT administration.

Fee waiver available
SAT Student Answer Service*

This service provides a list of question types from the specified test you took; whether you answered the question correctly or incorrectly, or omitted the answer; and the level of difficulty.

Fee waiver available
Multiple-choice hand score verification

When hand scoring of a multiple-choice score is requested, your entire answer sheet will be manually reviewed—you can't request verification of scores for a single section on the SAT or just one of several SAT Subject Tests taken on the same date.

For SAT only: If you order hand score verification, you will no longer see the full online score report, and you won't have access to the Student Answer Service or Question-and-Answer Service for your hand scored answer sheet.

Fee reduction available
Essay hand score verification

This verification determines whether there was an error made in the scanning or processing of the essay scores assigned by essay readers. If an error is found, your adjusted score is automatically reported and your fee is refunded.

Fee reduction available

*These are refundable only if your order has not yet been fulfilled or if you missed your test date (for example, if you canceled your test, were absent, or had to take a makeup test).
