Registration and Test Day Procedures

SAT Registration and Test Day Procedures

Students will be prompted to provide a photograph during SAT registration. This 
photo will appear on the Admission Ticket. This process will be Mandatory as of the 
March 2013 test. 

 An Admission Ticket will be required for testing. This is in addition to the 
existing requirement that students present an acceptable form of photo ID. 
Students’ gender and date of birth will appear on your test day NAR and on the 

Admission Ticket. This will provide additional data points for matching students’ 
IDs with their registration information. 

For students who test at weekend test centers, changes to test center, test date or 
test type (SAT to SAT Subject Tests™ or vice-versa) will not be allowed on test day. 
Students who wish to make registration changes must do so by the published late 
registration deadline for the desired test date. 

Standby testing will not be available. If students who test at centers miss the 
last registration deadline for a particular test date, they may have the option to 
request Waitlist Status through their online accounts. Waitlisted students will be on 
the supervisor’s test-day roster and will have a specially marked Waitlist Ticket. 
Waitlist students can be admitted if staffing, space and materials allow. All 
students allowed entry to the test center must present either an Admission Ticket 
or a Waitlist Ticket. New or changed registrations cannot be accepted at the test 
center on test day.
