Sending Archived SAT Scores

Once you've left high school and haven't tested for a year, College Board archives your SAT test scores and certain information you may have provided about yourself during testing. However, you can request that older scores be sent to you or to the colleges, universities, and scholarship programs of your choice.

Scores older than 2005 are no longer accessible. Other old scores may have been stored in data sources that are now decommissioned and no longer accessible. College Board is not obligated to maintain older scores.

Older Score Report Indicators

Some older score reports include special notes or indicators. Official score reports sent to colleges five or more years after a test date are accompanied by a message explaining that they may be less valid predictors of college academic performance than more recent scores. This is because in long periods of intervening time, student knowledge, skills, and abilities can grow and change. In addition, SAT scores prior to 2016 should, in particular, be interpreted with care, caution, and with appropriate concordance tables given changes to the SAT scale and content assessed.

How to Request Archived Scores

Please note that there is a score reporting fee for each report, plus an additional retrieval fee for processing archived scores.
