SAT/ACT Testing

the college board has released some updates:

In the face of school closures, we’re adapting to give students opportunities to show their strengths and continue on the path to college. Our top priorities are the health and safety of students and educators.

Right now, public health officials have made it clear it's not safe to gather students in one place. Many U.S. states have closed schools for the rest of the academic year, and globally there are widespread school closures across 192 countries. As such, we won't be able to administer the SAT® and SAT Subject Tests™ as planned on June 6, 2020.

We're working hard to make the SAT available in school and out of school as soon as the public health situation allows. 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'll 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 don't have SAT scores will have early access to registration for the August, September, and October administrations.

For each administration, we’re preparing to significantly expand our capacity for students to take the SAT when schools reopen. 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.

In addition, almost all of our state and many of our district partners have expressed their interest in providing SAT School Day administrations in September or October. Specific information about state and district testing will be shared in the coming weeks.

In the unlikely event that schools don't reopen this fall, the College Board will provide a digital SAT for home use, much as we’re delivering digital exams for three million Advanced Placement® students this spring. As we’re doing with at-home AP® Exams, we would ensure that at-home SAT testing is simple; secure and fair; accessible to all; and valid for use in college admissions.

We're committed to giving students as many chances as we can to show their strengths to admissions officers. As we navigate this evolving situation, we'll continue to rely on your partnership to ensure students have what they need as they apply to college during the 2020-21 school year.

We'll regularly update our webpage with information. Thank you for your partnership during this unprecedented time.


College Board

Dear Members,

As we address the challenges caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), the health and safety of everyone we serve is the top priority for the College Board.

We want to keep you informed of what we’re doing in response to the spread of the virus and do our best to address questions that you and your students have about College Board programs, both in the immediate and longer term.

We’re working to respond quickly to the evolving landscape of school closures and other instructional changes, and to provide educators with virtual resources. As students find themselves home from school, we want to provide opportunities for them to keep moving forward in their study and college planning.

We’re regularly posting information about the SAT® and Advanced Placement® Programs.

Thank you for your partnership and for all you're doing at your institutions to support students. We know you're addressing multiple challenges and priorities. We hope we can work together to be flexible and creative in our efforts to mitigate harm from the virus and keep as many students as possible on the path to college under these challenging circumstances. Throughout, our focus will be on ensuring that all students have the tools and opportunities they need to take the credit they have earned.
