NCAA/SAT News


If a student-athlete takes the current SAT before March 2016 and then takes the redesigned SAT at a later date, the NCAA Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the current and redesigned SAT when determining the student-athlete&'s initial eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the redesigned SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the current SAT, a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test. Please reference the College Board website for more information: https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/
Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior year in high school. At least half of all students take the SAT twice — in the spring of their junior year and in the fall of their senior year. Most students also improve their score the second time around. Go to www.collegeboard.com to register.

  1. Take the PSAT/NMSQT

    Sign up for the test, which is given in October. Taking the PSAT/NMSQT is the best way to get ready for the SAT.

  1. Plan for spring tests-Register for SAT only, not subject tests or talk to your counselor.

    You can take either the SAT or up to three SAT Subject Tests on one test day. Plan your testing schedule carefully if you want to take both types of tests.

  1. Send scores to colleges and scholarship programs

    If you know which schools you'd like to receive your scores, then consider sending them in the spring of your junior year. Colleges see this as a sign of interest and may use scores to qualify you for special campus visits programs, information sessions in your hometown or for scholarships.
