Please note: International SAT Test Deadlines are different

Please remember that you can take the SAT as often as you like - but you do have to pay for it each time.  The SAT registration deadlines are important test dates to remember - you do not want to miss registering for the test because you have forgotten the deadline.

High school students typically take their SAT for the first time in the spring of their junior year.  Many students also take the test a second time, usually in the fall of their senior year.  More than half of high school students take the SAT at least twice, with the majority of students showing an improvement in their test scores.

Students take the SAT subject tests either at the end of their junior year or the beginning of the senior year.  Students typically do the best on the subject tests if they take them as soon as possible after the completion of their course in the subject.  Students are advised to take the SAT language subject tests after at least 2 years of study.

Other important information for U.S. students:

  • The U.S. deadlines are only applicable to students who take the SAT in the United States and other U.S. territories
  • If you mail your registration materials, they must be postmarked by the U.S. deadlines which expire at midnight eastern time.
  • If you cannot take the test on a Saturday for religious reasons, Sunday administrations are usually scheduled the day after each Saturday test date.
  • The November SAT test dates are the only ones that offer the Language with Listening Tests.
