How to get your SSAT Score Report

Most SSAT scores are released to schools and parents online approximately 2 weeks after the completed test results are received by the SSAT administrators. Paper score reports take an additional week for delivery by US First Class mail.

Using your SSAT online account, you may add or remove score recipients anytime before or after testing for no additional fee. However, score recipients may only be removed prior to score release; so you may want to submit your registration with no recipients listed until after you view your child’s score report.

Superscoring and the SSAT

Most private schools will “superscore” the SSAT, whereby a school takes the highest sub-test scores from various test dates to a get a new higher “superscore.”  You should contact the school’s admissions office to which you are applying to inquire whether they will “superscore” by selecting the highest-scoring sections from multiple test dates.

To students’ benefit, the SSAT does not list the number of times a student took the SSAT or the number of score reports on file. Schools will only know about the score reports that you choose to send them. We recommend that a student prepare for and take the SSAT multiple times in order to improve their chances of achieving the scores needed for their top choice school.

Registration Tips

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

  • Students can register online for SSAT testing on a national test date or a flex test administration. Flex testing administration is only permitted once a year for each student.
  • Students can also register for national test dates by mail or fax.
  • If requesting SSAT Testing Accommodations, be sure to have them approved prior to test registration in order for the accommodations to be applied at the time of registration.
  • Regular registration deadlines (approximately 3 weeks prior to test date), late registration deadlines (approximately 2 weeks prior to test date) and rush registration deadlines (within 1 week of test date) can be found on our SSAT Tests & Deadlines page.
  • Current SSAT registration fees are as:
    • Regular Domestic registration: $127
    • Regular International registration: $247
    • Late registration fee: Additional $45
    • Rush registration fee: Additional $85
