Home-Schooled Students

Helping students in your community with the PSAT/NMSQT

The College Board encourages schools to test home-schooled students (especially those within their community) with their own students.

Parents of home-schooled students should contact the PSAT/NMSQT Coordinator at your school well in advance of the mid-October test dates, preferably during the previous June. Coordinators should order tests for these students when registering their school.

On test day

On test day, when completing the basic information on the answer sheet, these students should enter their state's home-school code in the "school code" section. (This is available in the PSAT/NMSQT Supervisor's Manual.) This will keep data for home-schoolers separate from your school's data. These students' score reports will be mailed to the home address the student enters on the answer sheet.

Customized Entry Pages


Visit the PSAT/NMSQT search page to find out when schools in your area are administering the PSAT/NMSQT. If a school has not yet registered for the next PSAT/NMSQT, check back at a later date as schools may register for the October test throughout the spring and fall.
