National Merit Scholarship Corporation

College Board sends PSAT/NMSQT scores to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), the test's cosponsor.

Colleges Don't Receive Scores

College Board does not send PSAT/NMSQT scores to colleges.

These scores are not intended to be part of college admission decisions. They should not be included on student transcripts that will be reproduced and sent to colleges unless the student (if 18 or older) or their parent/guardian has granted permission.

You're allowed to withhold scores from college admission and athletic offices, even when colleges ask for them.
