SAT Registration Website

When registering, we HIGHLY recommend you order the Question & Answer Service (QAS), if available. This will provide you with a copy of the test, which is excellent material to review if you end up taking the test again. Do not order the the Student Answer Service (SAS): it provides very little value and is a waste of money.

Should you register with or without the optional essay? Take a look at the list of colleges that require or recommend the SAT essay.

Should you send scores to colleges? Generally, no. There are some exceptions, such as recruited athletes or students up against impending application deadlines, but most students should wait until they see their scores and then send them to colleges later.
