Homeschooled Students

Find a local school offering the SAT or a PSAT-related assessment.

If you’re homeschooled and want to take the PSAT/NMSQT, contact a local school at least four months before the test.

Testing with Accommodations

Students with disabilities must have College Board approval to take the PSAT/NMSQT with accommodations. Homeschooled students are responsible for requesting their accommodations by the deadline and receiving approval.

When you have approval, tell the school right away so they can order your materials before the test material ordering deadline.

Fee Waivers

You might qualify for a PSAT/NMSQT fee waiver under these conditions:

  • You're in 11th grade.
  • Your family's annual income falls within USDA Income Eligibility Guidelines or you meet other criteria.

Ask the counselor at the school where you'll be taking the test if you qualify to take the PSAT/NMSQT for free.
