Registration Tips

If you’re looking for information on how to register your child for the SAT, here are some nuts and bolts about the process:

  • Registering online on the College Board website is the most efficient way to register. Or you can call 866-756-7346. Students with learning differences should call 609-771-7137 for testing accommodations and requirements.
  • Students can also register via postal mail by requesting an SAT Paper Registration Guide from their college guidance officer.
  • If requesting special accommodations, you must submit a request and provide documentation at least 7 weeks in advance to ensure approval.
  • Regular registration deadlines (approximately 3-4 weeks prior to test date) and late registration deadlines (approximately 2-3 weeks prior to test date) can be found on our SAT Tests & Deadlines page. If you miss the late registration deadline for a test, you can request Waitlist Status and charged a separate fee only if you are admitted to the test center on test day.
  • Current SAT registration fees are as follows:
    • SAT: $52
    • SAT (with Essay): $68 (essay will be discontinued after June 2021)
    • Late registration fee: Additional $30
    • Waitlist fee: Additional $53

Ivy League Tutoring strongly recommends that you order and pay for the SAT Question-And-Answer Service at the time of registration in order to receive a copy of the test booklet, a list of your child’s answers, the answer key and information about the type and level of difficulty of each test question. Materials are mailed 2-3 weeks after scores are released. This service will provide your child with the opportunity to review the questions they missed (with a tutor or independently) and to improve upon their score.

 

How to get your SAT Score Report

SAT scores are available for online viewing on your College Board account 2-3 weeks after your testing date. You can download your score report by logging into your College Board account. Once you’re logged in, click on SAT Scores. Then click on Download Report. The “download report” link should be in the top right-hand corner.

If your child registered for the test online and wants to receive an official paper score report in addition to the online score report, he or she must request it at the time of registration. If your child registered by mail, he or she will automatically be sent a paper score report.

As soon as online score reports are available, the College Board will begin sending SAT score reports to the colleges your child selected at the time of registration. Alternatively, you can also wait until after scores are available online to choose which colleges, if any, to send the score report to.

The SAT registration fee includes four free score reports to send to colleges, and additional score reports can be sent for an additional fee.

Superscoring

“Superscoring” is when a college takes the highest sub-scores from various test dates to a get a new higher “Superscore,” also known as “Highest Section Scores Across Test Dates.” Superscoring allows for the fact that students do not always perform at their best on any one given test date. This scoring approach is used widely by many colleges across the U.S. College Board lists the individual SAT score policies of all colleges here.

College Board also offers a score reporting service Score Choice which allows students to pick and choose, in accordance with a college’s score-use policy, which scores to send to colleges. This allows students more control over and how and when colleges receive their scores. If a student opts not to use Score Choice, all test date scores will be sent to colleges. Most colleges accept superscoring but you should check with each college you’re applying to for its individual policy. This information is usually available on the college’s admission pages. If not, you can call the college’s admissions office.
