A Note Regarding the SAT

A Note from the Collegeboard
Posted on 04/23/2020
SAT
As the College Board responds to the impact of coronavirus, our top priorities are the health and safety of students and educators. We’re working hard to make the SAT available in school and out of school as soon as the public health situation allows.
 
Right now, public health officials have made clear it is not safe to gather students in one place. Many states have closed school for the rest of the academic year, and globally there are widespread school closures across 192 countries. As such, we will not be able to administer the SAT and SAT Subject Tests as planned on June 6, 2020.
 
Students will have opportunities to take the SAT to make up for this spring’s lost administrations. If it’s safe from a public health standpoint, we will provide weekend SAT administrations every month through the end of the calendar year, beginning in August. This includes a new administration in September and the previously scheduled tests on August 29, October 3, November 7, and December 5.
 
Students will be able to register for these administrations beginning in May. We’ll communicate directly with students when the exact date is available. Eligible students will be able to take the exam with a fee waiver. Students who were registered for June and those in the high school class of 2021 who do not have SAT scores will have early access to registration for the August, September, and October administrations.
 
Due to the administration cancellations this spring, we expect there will be a high demand for the SAT administrations later this year. We’re calling on our member schools and colleges, as well as local communities, to open their doors and provide additional test center capacity so every student who wants to can take the SAT. 

 
  • If you are not a test center for the summer and fall administrations, and you would like to open to provide testing opportunities for students, please let Test Administration Services know as soon as possible.
  • If you are an SSD coordinator administering school-based testing, please update your SSD school testing calendar (available in May from SSD Online) to reflect any changes in availability.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll provide students, families, and our K–12 and higher ed members with new information about our testing plans. And we’ll regularly update our webpage. Thank you for your partnership.
