SAT Rescheduled for November 17, 2012

For those students who were expecting to take the SAT last weekend, it has been rescheduled for November 17, 2012, giving students affected by Hurricane Sandy some needed recovery time. According to the College Board website, students for whom the SAT was canceled will be receiving an email with the makeup date, and they also have the option to switch their registration to another national administration at no charge. Waitlisted students will not have the option for makeup testing:

"If you had a Waitlist Ticket for a center that canceled testing on November 3 or 4, your original Waitlist request was canceled, and you are not eligible for makeup testing. Please register for the next available date as soon as possible."

Please call the College Board at (866) 756-7346 or check their site for the latest information.

SAT Postponed Due to Hurricane Sandy

Seniors signed up to take the SAT this weekend can be relatively sure that it will be cancelled if they are in a region affected by Hurricane Sandy. The following note is posted on the College Board's website:

"In the event that we are unable to contact a test center, students and parents should assume that if the school is closed on Friday, November 2 for reasons related to Hurricane Sandy, it will not be administering the SAT this weekend. Students can also contact SAT customer service at 866-756-7346 to check on the status of their test center."

Students for whom the SAT is postponed will be emailed a makeup date free of charge as soon as possible. Please check the College Board website for further details and a list of school closings.
