Registration for SAT School Day is available online at http://sat.collegeboard.org/schoolday/feb through Wednesday, February 13, 2013. Registering is easy. Students only need four things: an email account, a free College Board online account, their EDUID (State ID) number and their SAT student voucher, available from their Program of Choice Coordinator. Every SAT registration includes up to four free score reports that can be sent to colleges and scholarship services.
Taking the SAT opens doors to opportunities beyond high school and a wide range of free resources:
The District and the College Board are providing registrants with free access to The Official SAT Online Course™. Additional free and low-cost SAT practice tools and resources, including a free, full-length practice test and The Official SAT Question of the Day™, are available at http://sat.collegeboard.org.
- Students will also have access to Skills Insight™, a general guide to help students determine their current skill level in reading, writing and math — the areas tested on the SAT. Learn more about Skills Insight at http://sat.collegeboard.org/practice/sat-skills-insight.
- Students can use their SAT scores to research colleges and universities on the College Board’s free comprehensive college planning website, BigFuture™. The BigFuture site (www.bigfuture.org) was created with the Education Conservancy and in consultation with students and educators to help make the college planning process simpler and more accessible. BigFuture walks students through each step of the college planning process, from finding colleges that fit, to writing a college essay, to applying for financial aid. The BigFuture website features college students offering tips via videos, such as what do to on a campus visit. Students can also explore college options and get advice from the schools themselves.
