The College Board sends PSAT 8/9 scores to:
- Districts (in many cases)
- States (in many cases)
Some schools also mail a copy of the paper score report directly to parents.
Colleges Don’t Receive Scores
The College Board does not send PSAT 8/9 scores to colleges.
These scores are not intended to be part of college admission decisions. They should not be included on student transcripts that will be reproduced and sent to colleges unless the student (if 18 or older) or parent/guardian has granted permission.
You are allowed to withhold scores from college admission and athletic offices, even when colleges ask for them.
The College Board does not sell student information to test-preparation companies, nor are such companies affiliated with the College Board. Learn what students should do if they receive unsolicited calls selling test-preparation services.
