Sending Old SAT Scores

beginning of content:

Once you have left high school and have not tested for a year, we archive your test scores and your responses to the SAT Questionnaire. However, they can be retrieved for reporting to you and to the colleges, universities, and scholarship programs you choose.

Older Score Reports

Some older score reports include special notes or indicators:

Official score reports sent to colleges five or more years after a test date are accompanied by a message explaining that they may be less valid predictors of college academic performance than more recent scores.

Scores for tests taken on or after April 1, 1995, are reported on a recentered scale. An "R" next to your scores indicates this.

How to Request Old Scores

There is a score reporting fee for each report, plus an additional retrieval fee for processing archived scores.

Check with your college before you order rush reports because institutions receive scores in different formats and may not review your scores until their next scheduled delivery time.
