Waitlist Registration

Standby testing for the SAT® is no longer permitted

Test registration on test day at the test center is not available. Unregistered individuals will not be admitted to the test center under any circumstances. Students who miss the late registration deadline or who have their paper registration returned to them unprocessed without enough time to resubmit it may be able to request Waitlist Status. Waitlist Status does not guarantee admission to an SAT administration, but Waitlist registrants may be able to take the test if sufficient staff, space and materials are available after all regularly registered test-takers have been seated. Waitlist Status can be requested from the last registration deadline up until five days before test day. Learn more about requesting Waitlist Status.
