After Test Day

beginning of content:

The test might be over, but test coordinators still have a few to-dos.

Return Answer Sheets ASAP

It's critical to return answer sheets and unused materials to the College Board no later than the next school day after test day. Failing to do so could delay scoring.

Paying for the Test

Schools order tests and send payments to the College Board; students do not.


Schools pay these fees:

  • PSAT 8/9 test books: $11
  • Unused test books: $4 for each unused test book exceeding 20 percent of the total ordered
  • International shipping surcharge: $6/test
  • Extra set of score reports (optional): $100
  • Score labels (optional): $100

Note: All schools receive one paper score report per student and can print additional score reports as well as score labels at no cost.

Calculating Payment

How much schools pay depends on factors including these quantities:

  • Tests ordered
  • Tests used

After the College Board receives your school's answer sheets, you'll receive an email asking you to sign in to the ordering website to confirm totals and answer a few additional questions. Your answers will be used to calculate your school's bill. The site will include full details about how to send in payment.
