When Do SAT Scores Come Out?

SAT scores for any test date during the school year are almost always available 2–4 weeks after you take the test. For SAT administrations over the summer, scores may take a little longer.

  • If you take the SAT on a Saturday, your multiple-choice scores will be ready about two weeks later.
  • If you take the SAT in school on a weekday, it may be closer to three weeks.
  • And if you take the SAT with Essay, your essay score will be ready a few days after your scores for the multiple-choice portion of the SAT are posted.

How Do I Get My SAT Scores?

You'll get an email letting you know when your SAT scores are available online. Go to Student Score Reports and sign in with the username and password associated with your College Board online account. This is also where you’ll see your scores for any PSAT-related test or SAT Subject Test.

It’s easy to create a College Board online account if you don’t already have one.

If you signed up for the SAT by mail and don’t have an online account, we’ll send you a paper score report. You can also get your scores over the phone.

When Will Colleges Get My SAT Scores?

The College Board sends your SAT scores to your chosen colleges within 10 days of when you receive all your SAT scores. If you took the SAT with Essay, it may take a day or two longer for colleges to get your scores.

What Time Are SAT Scores Released?

On score release day, about half the students will be able to see their scores online by 8 a.m. ET; the other half will typically see them no later than 8 p.m. ET. We'll email you when your scores are ready so you won't need to check throughout the day.
