Where are my SAT scores?
There will come a time when you are required to obtain your copy of SAT scores report. Whether you need them to complete an application to a college, apply for a scholarship, or for your own personal records, you have a few different options of obtaining your scores. Depending on how long ago you took the test, you can choose from the different methods explained in this article.
3 Easy Ways to Get a Copy of SAT Scores
There are three basic methods that you can request for your SAT score reports. You can either search for it online, mail in a request order, or make a phone call to the customer service representative.
If you have recently taken the SAT, I suggest you fully utilize the website College board. You can print out a copy for free. However, if you tested BEFORE October 2002, the reports are archived by the College Board and can only be obtained by mailing in a request form.
There are many other services that are available on the official college board website!
- Read and print out your score report
- Find out the next SAT exam dates
- Re-register for another test date
- Learn the most recent testing fees
- Obtain sample practice questions
- Find information about colleges
- Obtaining your SAT scores on line is FREE!
- If you want to send SAT scores directly to colleges, you will need to include the 4-digit school code in the mail order form. You can access the school code from this page.
1. Obtain SAT Scores Online
Use this method if you have recently taken the SAT. SAT scores are normally released online approximately 3 weeks after the test date. There is no charge for this service, so make sure you've registered with the website!
When you register for the test, enter the 4-digit code of your high school. Ask your counselor if you don't know the code. The official SAT score will be mailed to you approximately 5 weeks after the test.
- Step 1: Go to Collegeboard.com
- Step 2: Click on “Next Step:The SAT"

In this form, you are required to fill out personal information, including social security number and registration number (found on the back of your admissions card).
