*Registration options will be limited if students aren't taking the SAT for one of its main purposes.
**Students taking the digital SAT who need to borrow a device from College Board will need to register and request their device earlier than the registration deadline, to allow time for international shipping.
What are the anticipated international test dates for the 2023-24?
We're currently planning dates for the SAT Weekend administrations for the 2023–24 school year. Please check back later.
How will students take the digital SAT?
Students will take the SAT on a laptop or tablet, using Bluebook™, a custom-built digital exam application that they’ll download in advance of test day. The digital SAT will be administered in a school or a test center with a proctor present.
What if my students don't have a personal device to use?
Students may qualify to borrow a testing device if they submit a request with their test registration before the deadline (which is earlier than the regular registration deadline). Students who submit a request during SAT registration are not automatically guaranteed a loaned testing device.
Why does a student need to register earlier if they're requesting to borrow a testing device?
College Board needs extra time to process the request and ensure a device is available to be shipped to the test center.
What if my students are planning to test on a school-managed device?
Students testing on school-managed devices cannot download Bluebook™ themselves; someone at their school needs to take this step. Once Bluebook is on their managed device, instruct them to log in 1–5 days before their test to complete exam setup and get their admission ticket.
What happens if students have an issue with their device or connectivity on test day?
We've built the exam application to withstand internet outages. If the internet disconnects during testing, students will still be able to progress through the test with no disruption—all their work will be saved, and they won’t lose testing time.
