  • Students have two registration options: online registration and postal mail registration. To register your child online, go to the College Board website. To register your child by mail, your child must get an SAT Paper Registration Guide from the college guidance office at his or her school.
  • When registering online, registration fees must be paid via credit card. If you prefer to write a check, your child must register by postal mail.
  • Regular registration deadlines are typically about three to four weeks before a test date. Late registration deadlines are typically about two to three weeks before a test date. Visit our SAT Test Dates page to view the regular and late registration deadlines for specific test dates.
  • The basic SAT registration fee is $46, while the SAT with Essay is $60. The late registration fee is an additional $29. Visit our SAT Registration Fees page for more fee information. If you cannot afford to pay the SAT registration fee, your child may be eligible for a fee waiver. Visit the College Board website to find out more about fee waiver eligibility.
