SSAT Registration : How to register for the SSAT

Ready to register your child for the SSAT? There are two SSAT registration methods: online and mail/fax registration.

Online SSAT Registration
Online SSAT registration is available for students testing on a national test date or as a flex test administration. Go to the SSAT national test date registration form to register for a national test date. Go to the SSAT flex test registration form to register for a flex test administration (testing with an educational consultant, a regional consortium, or on an alternate group test date offered by your child's school). Keep in mind that students may only take one flex test administration a year (August through July). The regular registration fee is $139.

Mail/Fax Registration
Students testing on a national test date may also register by mail or fax. Mail/Fax registration is NOT available for flex test administrations. Students registering for a Sunday test administration (for those who observe Saturday Sabbath) MUST register by mail/fax. Visit the SSAT website for mail/fax registration instructions and Sabbath/Sunday testing registration instructions. The regular registration fee is $139.

Registration Deadlines
Regular SSAT registration deadlines typically fall about three weeks before a test date; late SSAT registration deadlines typically fall about two weeks before a test date. Students registering by mail/fax must register by the regular registration deadlines. Visit our SSAT Test Dates page to view specific regular and late registration deadlines.

Rush Registration
If a student misses the regular and late registration deadlines, he or she can register for the SSAT as a standby tester. SSAT standby registration is available online from two weeks before a test date through 8:00am on the test date. Standby registration does not guarantee a student a seat; standby registrants will be admitted based on seat and test booklet availability. There is an $85 fee for standby testing (in addition to the regular $139 registration fee). Visit the SSAT website fo ran SSAT Test Day Checklist.
