SSAT Test Dates

Looking for information about SSAT test dates?  Look no further!  Students taking the SSAT have three testing options: national SSAT test dates, flex test dates, and regional flex test dates.

Flex Test Dates
If a student would like to take the SSAT on a date that is not a national test date, he or she may register for the SSAT flex test.  Flex tests are individual or small group administrations of the SSAT offered by approved schools and educational consultants.  Students should schedule the test administration with an approved school or educational consultant prior to registering for the flex test.  Students can only take a flex test ONCE a year (note that the SSAT year runs from August 1st through July 31st).  For more information about the flex test option, visit the SSAT website.

Regional Flex Test Dates
Several regional consortia (regional groups of private schools) administer the SSAT to groups of students on dates that are not national test dates; these dates are known as regional flex test administrations.  As with regular flex test administrations, students can only take a regional flex test ONCE a year.  For more information about the regional flex test option, visit the SSAT website.
