Texas: A Partnership for Student Success
Schools can order SAT School Day for the 2022–23 school year on our test ordering site, the same place where PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 8/9 are ordered. Districts can monitor ordering on the same site.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is offering school districts and open-enrollment charter schools reimbursement for a college preparatory assessment, such as the SAT, taken during spring of a student’s junior year or anytime during their senior year. The TEA has partnered with College Board to offer a discounted rate for SAT School Day for Texas public school students in the eligible grade levels. Visit the TEA for more details.

Why Choose the SAT?
- Your students already know the SAT. Nearly 90% of Texas students are familiar with the SAT because they took the PSAT/NMSQT during the fall of their sophomore or junior year. They can access world-class, personalized practice through Khan Academy® to get ready for the SAT—for free.
- All Texas colleges and universities accept the SAT. All public and private colleges and universities accept the SAT for their admission test.
- Cultivates a college-going culture and supports equity. When students can take the SAT at their own school, they're more likely to take the test and gain access to higher education. Benefits for low-income students include unlimited free score reports and waived application fees at participating colleges.
- The SAT Suite Question Bank provides targeted practice. The question bank lets educators access over 3,500 questions from the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9 assessments.
- Continuously improve outcomes. All tests in the SAT Suite share a common score scale and are appropriate for their designated grade levels. This makes it easy to track performance across tests to measure growth and identify areas where students need help. Our interactive reporting portal makes it easy to view integrated data across the SAT Suite. Go to the K–12 score reporting portal.
- Simple to order. The entire SAT Suite of Assessments—including the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, and PSAT 8/9—are available to order online, all in one place, with the ability to administer multiple assessments at the same time. For SAT School Day, you can order for any number of students and select from six administration dates.

SAT School Day Implementation Resources: Resources that support educators on SAT School Day.
Registration: Unlike the weekend SAT, students don’t have to preregister for SAT School Day. Schools simply order the quantity of exams they need, and SAT registrations are generated when schools return their answer sheets for scoring.
Test Ordering: A brief demonstration of the test ordering site is available to help you become familiar with the updates. Additional information can be found on our website.
Billing: By default, individual schools are billed for test ordering costs. Within the test ordering site, districts can opt for district-level billing. Schools are billed based on the number of answer sheets returned for scoring. Invoices are sent a few weeks after testing. SAT fee reductions don't apply.
Districts will receive estimated funding annually for assessment reimbursement. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) will arrange payment with districts in the spring of the following year, once all student assessment data is received. The amount of estimated funding can be found on line 39 of the Summary of Finance report.

Students with Disabilities
Making sure that students with disabilities can test with accommodations is important to us. Students who need to take the SAT using accommodated materials or other accommodations must be approved to do so by Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD).
All requests are considered. To use accommodations, students must be approved in SSD Online.
Students with College Board−approved accommodations receive scores that can be reported to colleges. Once approved for accommodations, a student remains approved for all College Board tests, with limited exceptions.
