 It’s a good idea to plan ahead — and get comfy — before you start to register.
  1. Sign in to your free College Board account. Your parent or counselor can’t register for you.
  2. Provide your full, legal name and other identifying information. Make sure it’s the exact same name and information shown on your photo ID.
  3. Decide if you want to answer other questions about yourself. This takes time, but it’s worth it if you want colleges and scholarship organizations to find you. Learn why you should opt in to Student Search Service®.
  4. Decide whether to sign up for the SAT with Essay. See which colleges recommend or require it.
  5. Upload a photo that meets very specific photo requirements.
  6. Check out, and print your Admission Ticket.

Why and How to Send your SAT scores to Colleges?

There are two ways to send your scores to colleges, universities, or scholarship programs:

  1. During Registration

    You receive four score reports every time you register for the SAT. These four score reports must be used at the time of registration or up to nine days after the test date. We highly recommend that you take advantage of these score reports, as additional reports are subject to a fee.

  2. After Registration

    You can send score reports at any time from your “My SAT” account. The time frames for score delivery vary based upon each institution’s method of receiving scores. Please remember that an additional week may be needed for the score recipients to process your scores once they receive them.

    There is a fee for sending score reports starting ten days after the test date.
