Canceling Scores

beginning of content:

If you feel you didn't do your best on the SAT you can cancel your scores, but you need to act quickly. Once a request to cancel scores has been submitted, scores cannot be reinstated or reported to you or any institutions.


Cancellation Deadline

You must cancel no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the Thursday after your test date. Students with disabilities might have a different deadline—see below.

Option 1: At the Test Center

  1. After the test, ask the test supervisor for a Request to Cancel Test Scores form.
  2. Complete and sign the form.
  3. Return the form to the test supervisor before leaving the center.

Option 2: After You Leave the Test Center

Your written, signed request must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. ET on the Thursday after the test date.

Exception: Students with disabilities who test in school-based testing have until the Monday one week after the published test date to cancel their scores, due to the extended school-testing window.

Download and Print the Form

You can either complete the SAT Request to Cancel Scores form or write your request. The updated form will be available later this summer.

You must provide the following information to cancel your scores:

  • Test date
  • Test center number
  • Name of test you are canceling—either the SAT or SAT Subject Test(s)
  • Name, address, sex, birth date and registration number
  • Signature (required or the cancellation will not be processed)

You can’t submit cancellation requests by phone or e-mail because your signature is required.
