Ordering Is Open
Schools and districts order tests on our ordering site.
Schools and districts must officially order PSAT 8/9 test materials to get score reports after testing. Ordering reflects that your school has been approved for testing, that we have your correct mailing and contact information, and that your school has the correct materials to fairly administer tests.
Borrowing and lending is allowed for some test administrations, but schools using only borrowed materials won’t get score reports.
Test Schedule Changes
Starting in 2018-19:
- Schools will no longer choose PSAT 8/9 dates from "fall" and "spring" testing periods. Testing still runs from September through April.
- Schools choose test dates from two distinct new periods.

Invoice Schedule Changes
Starting in 2018-19, schools will no longer review invoice information immediately after test day. Learn more about the invoice schedule.
New Roles for Educators
Starting in 2018-19, school staff who administer PSAT-related assessments will have new titles:
- Test supervisors will become "coordinators."
- Supporting staff will become "proctors."
- Staff now known as proctors will become "monitors."
Testing Supports for English Learners
To make the PSAT 8/9 even more accessible to students, the College Board has worked with educators to provide testing supports for English learners (EL).
As of January 1, 2017, EL students taking the PSAT 8/9 have access to testing instructions in the following languages: Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Gujarati, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Urdu and Vietnamese. We've also provided a list of approved word-for-word glossaries that students may use on test day.
Coordinators planning for test day should print the translations and provide a copy for each EL student. Schools may also provide copies of the approved glossaries.
Where to Get Scores
Scores will be available depending on when schools return answer sheets.
Extra Score Reports and Labels
- You'll receive one free paper score report per student and can print score reports and labels through the score reporting portal.
- You can order an additional set of paper reports for $100 per administration. Printed score labels are also $100.

Look Up Your School Code
To offer the PSAT 8/9, your school needs an active six-digit College Board school code. Schools that offer the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP have one. If you need a code, call 609-771-7091.
