How to Send Your SAT Scores to Colleges

How to Send Your SAT Scores to Colleges
  • Opening Intro -

    An important part of the college or university application process is submitting your SAT scores.

    Administered by the College Board, these scores need to be sent out before the application deadline.


Send your SAT scores safely and securely.

Even if your application has already been sent, you can update your previous scores too by following the steps we have outlined:

1. Visit the College Board website. Point your mouse at the navigation bar and click on SAT to be transferred to a new page. On the SAT page, point your mouse to the navigation bar and click on Scores.

2. Click on “Send Your Scores” to be transferred to a new page. Read the information provided about the two ways to send your scores. Click on the blue “Send Scores” box and await transfer to a new page.

3. Sign in or sign up. If you’ve already signed up then simply sign in with your username or password. You already have this information if you have taken the test. For everyone else, click on “create an account” to open a new account.

4. Send your available scores. Once you are logged in, then click on “send available scores.” Search for colleges and scholarship programs by name, by state or by a four-digit code. Choose regular or rush delivery service, but keep in mind that some colleges do not accept rush reporting. Find out before ordering.

5. Supply your credit card information. You will be charged $10.50 per score report. A fee of $30 is charged for each rushed report. You may be able to get your fees waived — see your high school counselor who will provide you with a fee-waiver code, if eligible.

6. Your archived reports. If you have been out of high school for at least one year and you have not been tested for one or more years, then you need to fill out and send in an archived score report . You’ll pay the $10.50 score report fee and a mandatory $28 search fee. A rush reporting fee of $30 is optional. Send your completed form and payment to: SAT Program, P.O. Box 8057, Mt. Vernon, IL 62864.

More Information

If you have any questions, you can contact the College Board at 212-713-8000. Or, you can fill out and submit a contact form.

Be aware of deadlines to avoid having your college application turned down or delayed. It is your responsibility to ensure that your information is sent with time to spare. Lastly, the College Board does not issue refunds, so make your choices carefully.
