Please see the Registration Guide for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests for more information.

Registering through an SAT International Representative

Students registering to take the SAT through SAT International Representatives must register by paper, and they must mail their Registration Forms in time to arrive by the early registration deadline.

SAT International Representatives have specific fee payment guidelines, as noted in the listing given in the student’s area of this website. (This link will take you out of the professional sector and into the student area.) Only the Representatives listed are authorized to accept registrations on behalf of the SAT Program. We will return registrations that are submitted through unauthorized agents.
