SAT Registration - The Basics

Are you wondering how to register your child for the SAT? Here's the basic information you need to know about the SAT registration process.

  • Students have two registration options: online registration and postal mail registration. To register your child online, go to the College Board website. To register your child by mail, your child must get a Student Registration Booklet for the SAT from the school counselor office at his or her school.
  • When registering online, registration fees must be paid via credit card. If you prefer to write a check, your child must register by postal mail.
  • Regular registration deadlines are typically about three to four weeks before a test date. Late registration deadlines are typically about two to three weeks before a test date. Visit our SAT Test Dates page to view the regular and late registration deadlines for specific test dates.
  • The basic SAT registration fee is $52. The late registration fee is an additional $30. Visit our SAT Registration Fees page for more fee information. If you cannot afford to pay the SAT registration fee, your child may be eligible for a fee waiver. Visit the College Board website to find out more about fee waiver eligibility.
