What to Bring on SAT Test Day

There are only a few things you really need to bring on test day and a lot of things you'll be better off leaving at home. Be sure to bring:

  • Your fully charged testing device with the Bluebook™ application installed (see detailed device requirements).
  • Face covering (if required at your test center).
  • Your up-to-date admission ticket.
  • Acceptable photo ID.
  • Pencils or pens for scratch work.
  • An acceptable calculator for use on the Math section of the test (there will be an embedded graphing calculator available to use within Bluebook).
  • Epinephrine auto-injectors (like EpiPens) are permitted without an approved accommodations. They must be placed in a clear bag and stored under the student's desk during testing. For policies on other medications and medical devices, contact Services for Students with Disabilities.

Nice to Have

  • A watch without an audible alarm. (The Bluebook application has a built-in timer that tells you exactly how much time you have left, but you might still want to time your break.)
  • A charging cable if your testing device can’t hold a charge for 3 hours.
  • A bag or backpack.
  • A drink or snacks (for your break).
  • A backup testing device.


How do I print my digital SAT admission ticket?

If you've registered for an upcoming digital SAT administration, 1–5 days before your test day, go into Bluebook™, select your test, and complete a short exam setup. The app will generate your admission ticket, which you can print out or email to yourself.
