How to Take the SAT Test: Dates and Schedule

This is Print View - Back to Normal View

SAT test date scheduleThe SAT Reasoning Test is administered 7 times per year, each date falling on a Saturday. For each date, a second administration is offered the following Sunday to accommodate religious observances.

US students

US students taking the SAT need to remember three dates:

  • The test date
  • The registration date, which falls roughly a month prior
  • The late registration deadline, 1-2 weeks after the first registration due date

US students registering by the late registration deadline pay a $23 late fee. US students include those testing inside the US, its territories and Puerto Rico.

Non-US students

Students taking the SAT outside the US need to remember three dates:

  • The test date, which is the same as in the US
  • The registration date, which is the same as in the US
  • The optional early registration date roughly two weeks prior to the regular registration date.

Students testing outside the US have no late registration option, and must have submitted their registration by the regular registration due date.

On March 14, no SAT Test is offered outside the US.
