The College Board
In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19), the College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020, SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. Registered students will receive refunds.
The College Board will provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations.
During this challenging time, our focus will remain on the health and safety of students. We will be flexible, thoughtful, and collaborative in exploring ways to continue to support student learning and provide opportunities to test.
