March and May SAT Administrations
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, College Board canceled the May 2, 2020, SAT and SAT Subject Test administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled for March 28) were also canceled.
Students who already registered for May, whose March test centers were closed, or who do not receive March scores because of any irregularities will receive refunds.
Future Testing Opportunities
We know students are anxious about how the coronavirus crisis will affect their college application process, including taking the SAT.
We’re committed to giving students as many chances as we can to show their strengths to colleges, while relying on the guidance of public health officials. Throughout, we’ll continue to focus on students with fee waivers and those with accommodations.
In the unlikely event that schools do not reopen this fall, College Board will provide a digital SAT for home use, like how we’re delivering digital exams to 3 million AP students this spring. As we’re doing with at-home Advanced Placement exams, we would ensure that at-home SAT testing is simple, secure and fair, accessible to all, and valid for use in college admissions.
Like the paper test, a digital, remote version of the SAT would measure what students are learning in school and what they need to know to be successful in college.
The safety of students and test center staff is ACT’s top priority. ACT has rescheduled its April 4 national test date to June 13 across the U.S. in response to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). All students registered for the April 4 test date will receive an email from ACT in the next few days informing them of the postponement and instructions for free rescheduling to June 13 or a future national test date.
