  • The SAT and PSAT/NMSQT are now fully digital.  The digital exams are shorter, adaptive, and include an embedded calculator.  Students are required to use their SPS device to participate in the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT. Personal computers are not permitted.
  • Exams will take place during a testing window throughout October 2024, determined by each high school.  Contact your student’s school for exact dates and times.
  • Running Start students enrolled in SPS will be registered for the SAT or PSAT but must come to their high school at least a week in advance to receive an SPS device and install the College Board testing browser.
  • Non-SPS enrolled students who live within our attendance boundaries may be eligible to participate but must contact their SPS attendance area high school no later than September 20.  Student age, grade, and home address will need to be confirmed. 
  • For any new accommodation requests, the parent/guardian must submit the consent form to the school to initiate the approval process.  Students who have had accommodations approved for previous College Board exams do not need to request again.  Only accommodations approved by the College Board in advance are permitted for the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT.
  • For the School Day SAT only, English learners may be eligible for 50% extra time, use of a word-to-word bilingual dictionary and translated directions.  The extra time support for English learners requires parent/guardian consent if the student is under 18 years of age, and the request must be approved in advance by the College Board.
