Many students sign up for the SAT months in advance with plans to study for the test. Frequently, though, the procrastinator within emerges, video games replace study time, and panic ensues immediately before the big day! If this sounds familiar, then this post is for you.
If you decide you would like to push back your SAT test date, you can make the change by following the process below.
According to College Board, if you want to change your SAT Test date (or test center or test type), you must:
1) Make the change no later than the Wednesday 2—3 weeks before your test date.
Changes to your test center or test date can be made online through your free College Board account or by calling College Board Customer Service.
To change your test type, you must contact College Board by phone Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET. Summer hours (after the June administration through August) for SAT Program Customer Service are Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT.
(If you want to push back your test date, but it is within 2 weeks of your test date, call College Board to find out your options or see if they can still make the change.)
2) Pay an additional change fee.
A credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover) is required to pay the change fee of $25.
If you decide that you do not want to take the SAT at all, it is not necessary to notify College Board.
Your test and registration fees are nonrefundable. If you do not show up on test day, a score report will not be generated. This will not prevent you from taking the test in the future; however, you will have to pay the regular registration fees for any future SAT tests.
