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.

The Rulebook

  • 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.

Here’s how:

  • 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.
