Latest updates on SAT from College Board

1/ Fall 2020 SAT dates

College Board is still providing weekend SAT or SAT Subject Test administrations every month through the end of the calendar year, beginning in August.

Local schools and test centers will make individual decisions about whether to administer the SAT. The last day for test centers to confirm whether they will administer the August SAT is August 17.

College Board recommends that students check directly with the test center, including the test center’s website, on the morning of the test.

2/ Health & Safety Measures

During the test, all students and staff have to wear a mask or protective face covering, and students must be seated at least six feet apart. When students arrive on the test day, the testing staff will conduct a short survey before letting students into a test center to determine if a student should be sent home due to sickness.

The College Board encourages students who don’t feel well to stay home, and will transfer those students to another test date at no charge through September. If students would rather cancel their registration, the administration will issue a full refund.

3/ Test Center Availability and Capacity

This year, many schools and test centers will have reduced capacity because of social distancing guidelines, and they may encounter unexpected closures. Because of public health restrictions and high demand, there is limited seating capacity for students testing in certain areas. While College Board cannot directly control capacity and test center availability, they will try to ensure that as many students as possible are able to test safely.
