Important Information

U.S. deadlines apply to students testing in the United States and U.S. territories.

  • U.S. registration materials that are mailed must be postmarked by the U.S. deadlines. The deadlines expire at 11:59 p.m. ET, U.S.
  • Additional fees apply if you register late, change your test center, change your test date, or switch from taking the SAT to taking a Subject Test after registering. Find out how to make registration changes and get deadlines.
  • Sunday administrations usually occur the day after each Saturday test date for students who can't test on Saturday due to religious observance. Please note this exception: Sunday testing for the October 3, 2020, SAT will be held October 18, 2020.
  • If you miss the late registration deadline, you may be able to get on the waitlist.
  • Your registration options will be limited if you aren't taking the SAT for one of its main purposes.
