SAT Waitlist Testing - What it is and how it works

Did your child miss the regular and late registration deadlines for the SAT? If so, he or she can request SAT waitlist status. Here's what your child needs to know about the waitlist option.

  • Test centers admit from the waitlist on a first-come, first-serve basis and only if there are seats, materials, and staff available after all registered students have been admitted.
  • A student could be turned away; there are no guaranteed seats or test booklets.
  • To request a spot on the waitlist, a student must submit the request online through their College Board account. Students may choose only one test center and test type (SAT or SAT Subject Tests).

For more information about SAT Waitlist Status, visit the College Board website.
