Sending SAT Scores
If you take the SAT, you can select four colleges to receive your score report for free. Just indicate your chosen colleges on the questionnaire you fill out before test day.
You also have about a week after the test to tell us where to send your free score reports by logging in to your College Board online account. After that, there's a fee to send scores.
Low-income students can send unlimited score reports to colleges for free at any time.
Hearing from Colleges
If you're taking the SAT or PSAT 10, you can connect with colleges and scholarship programs looking for students like you. Just opt in to Student Search Service® when you complete the pretest questionnaire or when you sign in to your College Board account.
