Paper Score Reports

Students who register online and wish to receive a paper score report by mail in addition to the online score report must request it when they register.

Students who register by mail and who don't have active College Board online accounts will receive paper score reports. They can also get their SAT scores by calling customer service, but there's an additional fee.

Scores by Phone

You can get SAT scores by phone starting on the day they're released, but there's an extra fee.

Who Else Sees Your Scores

If you chose score recipients before scores were released, those colleges and scholarship programs will get your score report shortly after you do. Your high school, district, and state will be able to see your scores online too.

If Your Scores Aren't Online Yet

Most scores are available around the same score release date, but some might not be. If you fall within this group, you'll get a message telling you to check back—usually about a week later.

Some reasons scores may be delayed:

  • You took a makeup test later than the actual test day.
  • Your answer sheet was received late.
  • Your answer sheet is missing information.
  • Your answer sheet information is inconsistent with your registration information.
  • An irregularity was reported at your test site.

We understand it can be frustrating if you don't see your scores when you're expecting them, and we appreciate your patience. If your scores aren't delayed, you can troubleshoot missing scores.
