Students outside the U.S.

In 2011, more than 70,000 students participated in the PSAT/NMSQT at 1,308 secondary schools located in more than 140 countries and territories outside the United States.

Students outside the U.S., whether American citizens or other nationalities, must make arrangements with a local school to register for and take the PSAT/NMSQT. The PSAT/NMSQT Coordinator at that school will help the student:

  • Sign up for the test,
  • Pay the $15 test fee
  • Receive the Official Student Guide to the PSAT/NMSQT, which includes a full-length practice test.

United States students temporarily out of the country will need to provide the following information on the PSAT/NMSQT answer sheet:

  • Code number of their U.S. school in section 20a
  • Name and address of their U.S. school in section 20b
  • Name and address of the school where they are taking the test in section 20c

Score reports will be mailed to each student's U.S. high school. Students still out of the country when the test scores are released in late January should ask their principal or counselor to forward the score report to them.

Use the "advanced search" option on the PSAT/NMSQT search page to find out which schools in the 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.
