How your students can cancel their SAT scores
Students who feel that they did not do their best on the SAT can cancel scores on the test if they do so within a few days (see below). Once a request to cancel scores has been submitted, scores cannot be reinstated and are not reported to the student or any institutions.
Canceling scores at the test center
To cancel a score at the test center, a student:
- Asks the test supervisor for a Request to Cancel Test Scores Form
- Completes and signs the form before leaving the test center
- Returns the form to the test supervisor before leaving the center
Canceling scores after leaving the test center
Students may decide to cancel their scores after leaving the test center. We must receive the request to cancel scores in writing no later than 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the Wednesday after the test date. Students cannot submit cancellation requests by phone or email—their signature is required. Students with disabilities who test in school-based testing have until the Monday a week after the published test date to cancel their scores, due to the extended school-testing window.
Students must fill out and sign the Request to Cancel SAT Scores Form. If they write a separate request, they must provide the following information:
- Test date
- Test center number
- Name of test they are canceling—either SAT or SAT Subject Test
- Name, address, sex, birth date, and registration number
- Signature (required or the cancellation will not be processed)
The request should be labeled "Attention: SAT Score Cancellation" and should be sent by:
