The College Board has just announced that all SAT testing has been canceled until June 6th. So if you were planning on taking the test on March 14th or May 2nd, you'll need to make alternate plans.
Here's what you need to know.
Can you makeup the test?
The College Board is attempting to reschedule testing dates to accommodate all the impacted students.
In the meantime, you can attempt to sign up for the June 6th testing date. Registration closes May 8th but be aware that spots for this date will fill up quickly, so be sure to sign up ASAP. Remember that if your preferred testing location is full, you can select alternate testing centers. Learn more here.
Do you have to pay again?
The College Board says it will refund all registration fees to students who were unable to take the test.
To register for a new date, you'll need to repeat the signup process, including paying the fee.
Who to contact with questions
Your first source of information should be your school guidance counselor. If you have specific questions about your registration or your College Board account, you can contact them using the info below. Note that response times may be longer than normal due to the unusual amount of closures.
