Requesting Sunday Testing
Sunday testing is available for test-takers who are unable to take the SAT on Saturday for religious reasons.
Sunday test dates immediately follow each Saturday test date, unless there is a conflict with a religious holiday.
- You can request Sunday testing only if your religion doesn’t allow testing on a published Saturday test date.
- You can’t test on both Saturday and Sunday.
- Sunday testing is not available in India or Pakistan.
Get a Letter from an Official Religious Leader
If you want to take the test on a Sunday, you need to provide a letter that meets these conditions:
- Explains the religious reason for the request
- Is printed on stationery from your house of worship
- Is signed by an official religious leader
Register by Mail
The first time you register for Sunday testing, you must register by mail.
- Get the Student Registration Guide for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests from your high school counselor.
- Enter the number 01000 for your first-choice test center code and leave the second choice blank.
- Include the signed letter from your religious leader with the registration form.
- Mail your registration and payment by the regular postmark deadline. If you’re testing outside the United States, your documents must be delivered by the deadline for international registration.
Registering a Second Time
Once you’ve registered for Sunday testing, you can reregister online or by phone for additional test dates. However, mailed registrations must always include the letter from a religious leader, even for students who have registered for Sunday testing before.
If a Sunday Test Center Closes
If a Sunday test center must close, the SAT Program arranges for a makeup and notifies the registered students.
