All dates and registration information can be found on our SAT dates and deadlines page.

Schools and test centers may still have to reduce capacity due to continued health guidelines, 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.

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.

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, whichever are more stringent.

College Board Requirements

  • As part of check-in, students and staff who aren't vaccinated must agree to wear a mask while at the test location and during testing. Students will need to remove their mask for ID verification during check-in. Students who don’t agree to this requirement will be dismissed.
  • Vaccinated students and staff have the option to wear masks.
  • Students must be seated at least 3 feet apart during testing.
  • Students must confirm a series of statements (more below) prior to entering the test center or testing room.
  • 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.

If students don't feel well on test day, they should stay home and contact Customer Service as soon as possible on test day to select a new test date at no charge.

Both students and staff will be asked to confirm their agreement with four statements before they can be admitted to a test center. Testing staff will deny entry to any student who doesn't confirm all the statements below or refuses to answer them.

  • You do not have covid-19 or reason to believe you have covid-19. Symptoms of covid-19 include cough, fever, chills, muscle pain, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell.
  • If you aren’t fully vaccinated, you agree to wear a mask the entire time you’re at this test site.
  • You agree to follow the health and safety guidelines in place in this test site as instructed by testing staff. NOTE: Testing staff will follow the most stringent guidelines in effect for this site.
  • By entering the testing room, you’re accepting the risk of covid-19 exposure. While we have taken measures to help create a safe environment, unfortunately it isn’t possible to remove all risk.

Check your test center's website for any additional or specific entry requirements it may have. If you're traveling internationally to test, it's your responsibility to know and follow any quarantine requirements or travel restrictions in the location where you're testing. Test centers may require proof that you've followed quarantine requirements and/or travel restrictions at check-in.

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.

College Board and Khan Academy® provide free resources online, including full-length practice tests and personalized learning tools.

Our focus will remain on student safety and ensuring students have the tools they need and the opportunities to succeed on their path to college.

Please check this page regularly for updates.

If you have questions or concerns about your scheduled testing with College Board programs, please contact us as soon as possible. Wait times may be longer than normal.

Updated Customer Service Hours
College Board phone support hours are 9 a.m.—6 p.m. ET, Monday—Friday.

All anticipated test dates are scheduled to move ahead as planned. College Board is monitoring the spread of covid-19, and we'll remain focused on the health and safety of students, educators, and their communities.

Schools and districts make the decision to administer the assessments in accordance with College Board requirements and their local health and safety guidelines. We're asking test centers to report closures to College Board as soon as possible to help ensure students are informed and to reduce stress and uncertainty ahead of test day. You’ll receive an email if your test center decides to close. We encourage you to check the test center closures page the morning of test day.

For weekend SAT testing, students can expect to hear from College Board about changes or cancellations. Make sure we can get in touch with you, or visit our website for updates.

Test centers must follow all College Board requirements or local guidelines, whichever is more stringent. Students must be seated at least 3 feet apart, and all unvaccinated students must wear a mask at all times. Students must also confirm a series of statements (e.g., they don’t have covid symptoms) prior to entering the test center or testing room. We’re continuing to ask test centers to post the information about their specific policies prominently on their website.

All unvaccinated students and staff must wear a mask or protective face covering during the SAT administration. Vaccinated students and staff may choose to wear a mask, but it's not required. Centers should follow local mask guidelines if those are stricter.

College Board requires all students and staff to remain at least 3 feet apart during an SAT administration; however, test centers should follow local guidelines if those are more stringent.

Students must cancel their existing registration and reregister for their new administration by the late registration deadline for domestic students or by the standard registration deadline for international students. A cancel fee of $25 is assessed.

After the change deadline, a late cancel fee of $35 is assessed until test day. A full refund on the canceled registration will be provided. You won't be able to make changes to your registration after test day.

If you don't feel well on test day, please stay home. Contact Customer Service to cancel your registration at no charge and reregister for a different administration. Please contact Customer Service no later than the day of your scheduled test administration to cancel your registration.

We've expanded our distribution of fee waivers to schools and community-based organizations to make it easier for eligible students to access SAT fee waivers.

College Board is extending the adapted policies and procedures from 2020–21 administrations to support schools administering the SAT School Day and PSAT-related assessments in fall 2021.

Based on feedback from educators, we're continuing to offer the following 2020–21 flexibilities when administering tests to support schools in adhering to safety and social distancing guidelines:

  • Options to test across multiple dates: Schools can order for multiple test administration dates to reduce the number of students reporting to school on a single test date for SAT School Day and the PSAT/NMSQT. This flexibility already exists for PSAT 8/9 because this assessments is administered across testing windows.
  • Off-site testing: Schools no longer need to submit an off-site plan for approval for administering tests off-site. For SAT School Day, schools simply select the sites they want to use and order materials for those sites. This flexibility already exists for administering PSAT 8/9 and PSAT/NMSQT.
  • Flexible start times: For SAT School Day, PSAT 8/9, and PSAT/NMSQT, schools can start testing earlier and/or later in the day than usual and split their students into different testing groups on a single day. All testing must start before the first group to test completes testing. In other words, no group of students can begin testing after another group has completed the test.

Yes. If you can estimate how many students will test in the fall of 2021, you should place your order as soon as possible by the ordering deadlines. Schools should, however, order test materials for each administration carefully, as unused test fees may apply.

No, schools that have been approved to order test materials aren't required to submit testing plans or notification of policies used to College Board.

Schools will be required to follow local public health guidelines and should be prepared to communicate all requirements to students ahead of test day. College Board supports local efforts to help ensure the safety and comfort of their staff and students.
