SAT Cancellation | Do they cancel the test for bad weather?

SAT Cancellation – What to do if the weather is looking grim

SAT test day is stressful enough without having to worry about bad weather. If inclement weather or other local emergencies strike your area, then there is a possibility that your child’s SAT test center may close and cancel the test administration. To find out about SAT test cancellations, take the following steps:

  • Check the College Board website for test center closing announcements. Announcements are made beginning a few days before a test date. Be sure to check the website the Friday evening before and the Saturday morning of your child’s test date.
  • Check your local television or radio stations that report school closings. SAT test center closings are typically announced via these media outlets.

If your child’s test center is closed, the College Board will likely reschedule the test date. Makeup dates will be listed on the College Board website once they are confirmed.
