Sunday testing is available for test-takers who are unable to take the SAT on Saturday for religious reasons.
Sunday test dates immediately follow each Saturday test date, unless there is a conflict with a religious holiday.
- You can request Sunday testing only if your religion doesn’t allow testing on a published Saturday test date.
- You can’t test on both Saturday and Sunday.
- Sunday testing is not available in India or Pakistan.
Get a Letter from an Official Religious Leader
If you want to take the test on a Sunday, you need to provide a letter that meets these conditions:
- Explains the religious reason for the request
- Is printed on stationery from your house of worship
- Is signed by an official religious leader
Register by Mail
The first time you register for Sunday testing, you must register by mail.
- Get the Student Registration Booklet for the SAT and SAT Subject Tests from your high school counselor.
- Enter the number 01000 for your first-choice test center code and leave the second choice blank.
- Include the signed letter from your religious leader with the registration form.
- Mail your registration and payment by the late registration deadline (for mailed registrations). If you’re testing outside the United States, your documents must be delivered by the deadline for international registration.
Registering a Second Time
Once you’ve registered for Sunday testing, you can reregister online or by phone for additional test dates. However, mailed registrations must always include the letter from a religious leader, even for students who have registered for Sunday testing before.
If a Sunday Test Center Closes
If a Sunday test center must close, the SAT Program arranges for a makeup and notifies the registered students.
