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.
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.
If I’m homeschooled, how do I access my PSAT/NMSQT scores?
Scores will be available online. For more information, see Getting Your Scores .
Are fee waivers available for homeschooled students?
Yes. If you’re in 11th grade and your family’s income meets the eligibility requirements, you might qualify for a PSAT/NMSQT fee waiver. To find out if you qualify, ask the counselor at the school where you’re taking the test.
If I'm homeschooled, where will score reports for the test be sent?
Scores will be available online. For more information, see Getting Your Scores.
