Getting SAT Fee Waivers to Students
SAT fee waivers are sent directly to schools and community-based organizations (CBOs). School counselors identify first-time fee waiver–eligible students at their school and distribute a fee waiver code to them. Students who've already tested with a fee waiver will automatically have their full set of fee waiver benefits in their College Board account.
Authorized agencies and CBOs may also distribute fee waiver codes.
Viewing Fee Waiver Benefits
Students with SAT fee waivers can sign into their College Board account to view their fee waiver benefits and see what benefits they have left if:
- They've already used an SAT fee waiver.
- Took the SAT on a school day and already accepted their full set of fee waiver benefits.
- Entered a 12-digit fee waiver code when registering for upcoming tests.
