New SAT Score Release Policies

We’re making changes to help students and institutions get scores more quickly. Here’s what you need to know about the 2017-18 school year:

  • October, November, December, March, and May from the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math sections will be released about two weeks after test day. Students will receive emails when those multiple-choice scores are ready.
  • Students who take the SAT with Essay will get those scores five days after their multiple-choice scores become available.
  • After students receive all their scores, you’ll see their reports in the K–12 portal as they become available on a weekly basis.
  • August and June scores may take longer—up to six weeks for all scores.
