How to Get Your SAT Admission Ticket

Getting your admission ticket for the SAT on a weekend works differently for the digital SAT than it did for the paper and pencil SAT.

If you’re taking the SAT on a weekend, you’ll get your admission ticket from Bluebook™, the same testing application you’ll use to take the test. First, you’ll need to download Bluebook to the device you’ll use on test day. You don’t need to wait to do this—you can download Bluebook and check out the test preview or take a full-length practice test at any time. Sign in to Bluebook with your email address and password 1–5 days before the test to complete a quick exam setup. You must complete this step by the day before your test. At the end of exam setup, the app will generate your admission ticket. You’ll need this admission ticket on test day. Take a picture or screenshot of it, print it, or email it to yourself for easy access.

Your admission ticket has information about you and your test center. Review the ticket to make sure it’s accurate. If there’s a mistake or if you have questions, call us at 866-756-7346. 

Your admission ticket may have special instructions about your test center. Read them carefully so you know what to do.
