How to Register for the SATThere are two ways you can register for the SAT — online or by mail. To register online, you must first have a CollegeBoard account. Setting one up is pretty easy! Just visit the CollegeBoard website to set up your free account. Once you have your account, you’ll need a few things to register:
- Your photo I.D. - you’ll also need this on test day!
- A photo of yourself that you can upload to the registration site
- A credit card to pay the registration fees (more on this later)
- A printer to print your admissions ticket - you’ll also need this on test day!
SAT Test Dates and DeadlinesBelow is a table with SAT test dates and registration deadlines. Don’t wait until the deadline to register! You should register as soon as you know which test date you are going to choose to take the SAT. Test date locations may fill up and you’ll want to take the SAT at your high school or close to your home so that you don’t have to drive too far on test day.
