We know schools and test centers are continuing to navigate uncertainties due to covid-19. Our top priority continues to be the health and safety of students and educators.
There may be limited testing capacity in certain areas due to public health restrictions and high demand. While College Board can't directly control test center capacity and availability, we're working to ensure as many students as possible are able to test safely. Test centers make individual decisions about whether to administer the SAT, and they may close before the administration, right up until test day. We ask test centers to report closures to College Board as soon as possible.
Students should frequently check email and the test center closure page before and on test day to confirm their center is open. Make sure we can get in touch with you by email and/or text message if your center decides to close or reduce capacity between now and test day. If this happens, students will be notified that they shouldn’t report to their test center, and they'll receive a follow-up notification after the test day to confirm whether a makeup is available or if they will receive a refund.

All dates and registration information can be found on our SAT dates and deadlines page.
Test Center Availability, Capacity, and Closures
Schools and test centers may still have to reduce capacity and they may need to close unexpectedly. While College Board can't directly control capacity and test center availability, we're working to ensure that as many students as possible are able to test safely.
If you can't find a nearby test center with availability on your preferred test date, be sure to check other dates.
We ask test centers that decide they need to close or reduce the number of students who can test to contact College Board as soon as possible so we can help ensure students are informed ahead of test day.
For specific information about your registration, please check the email address associated with your registration, though there may be a delay between the test center closing and the email notification.
Health and Safety Requirements
Schools and test centers make individual decisions about whether to administer the SAT. All weekend test centers must adhere to College Board requirements or local public health guidelines.
College Board Requirements
- Masks are optional during SAT administrations unless your testing location generally requires masks according to local laws.
- Students are responsible for knowing the local laws and should bring a mask just in case.
- Masks are allowed at all centers. Students and staff who opt to wear masks must be allowed to do so.
- Students must be seated at least 3 feet apart during testing.
- Do not report to the test center on test day if you are feeling sick. Students may contact Customer Service by the end of test day for a full refund. Students will not be charged a cancellation fee if they stayed home due to illness.
- Students who violate the requirements put in place by their test center or College Board should be dismissed from the test center; if this happens, their scores will be canceled, and they won't receive a refund.
Visit this site before reporting to your test center to ensure you have the latest information.
College Admissions Information
Colleges understand that not all students are able to take a college entrance exam because of test center closures and reduced capacity due to covid-19. Most colleges aren’t requiring a test score for the upcoming admissions cycle. While almost all still accept scores, most are rightfully being flexible for students who are unable to test. You should check the college's website for the most updated information on their application requirements.
