SAT Registration: Know your basics

If you are interested in SAT, it would be wise to spend some time understanding the SAT registration process. The College Board conducts the SAT seven times in the US per year. The exam is conducted in October, November, December, January, March, May and June. Internationally, the test is administered six times with March being left out of the calendar.

SAT registration deadlines are typically five weeks before the exam. For instance, the registration deadline for the next SAT (to be held on June 6, 2015) was May 8. However, the College Board allows flexibility for students in the US by offering late registration deadlines at an additional cost. The SAT registration fees is $52.50 with fee waiver facilities for some eligible students. Students can also change their exam schedule with an additional change fee. Cancellations are also allowed with penalties.

International students would do well to plan way in advance. There is no late registration facility available for these students. Applications should be received within the prescribed SAT registration deadlines. The College Board also follows additional policies and requirements for international students depending on the country, details of which are available online. These students can also register for the exam through international representatives. While the SAT registration fees remains the same for these applicants, there is an additional cost if testing outside the US.

There are multiple payment modes available to students such as credit cards, PayPal, Cheques and bank drafts. Registrations can be mailed, done online or completed through a phone.
