Create College Board Account for SAT
Creating a College Board account is the first step in registering for the SAT and accessing other College Board resources. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you create your account:
Visit https://www.collegeboard.org to access the College Board website.
- Locate the “Sign Up” choice: The “Sign In” button can be found in the page’s upper right corner. When you click on it, choose “Sign Up” to start a new account.
- Complete the registration form by entering your name, date of birth, address, phone number, email address, and other relevant details. When you take the SAT, your information must exactly match what is on your photo ID, so be sure to input it correctly.
- Create a username and password: You must pick a secure password and a distinctive username. You’ll need these in the future to access your account, so be sure to write them down or save them someplace secure.
- Add the details of your high school: If you are presently enrolled in high school, you must include the name, city, state, and school code (if you are aware of it).
- Describe your educational goals: The College Board will inquire about your college aspirations, including your desired major and degree. Although it’s optional, this information can help the College Board match you with scholarships, colleges, and universities that share your interests.
- Adhere to the conditions: Review the terms and conditions provided by the College Board, then tick the box to demonstrate your agreement.
- Finish the security check: To ensure that you are a human and not a robot, you may be required to finish a security check, such as inputting a CAPTCHA code.
- Submit your registration: By selecting the “Submit” option, register for a College Board account.
Once your account is created, you can use it to register for the SAT, access your SAT scores, send your scores to colleges, and explore other College Board resources like AP courses and college planning tools.

To register for an SAT test date through the College Board website, follow these steps:
- Sign in to your College Board account: Go to https://www.collegeboard.org/ and click the “Sign In” button in the top-right corner of the page. Enter your username and password to access your account.

- Click “Register for the SAT”: The “Register for the SAT” button is on the overview page. Click on it to begin the registration process.
- Choose a test date: You’ll be presented with a list of available test dates, typically several months in advance. Select the test date that works best for you. Remember that registration deadlines are usually about a month before the test date, so register on time.
- Select a test center: You’ll need to choose a test center where you’ll take the SAT. You can search for test centers by location or by entering your zip code. Test centers can fill up, so it’s a good idea to register early to secure a spot at your preferred location.
- Choose your test type: You can register for the SAT (without Essay) or the SAT with Essay. Some colleges require the essay portion, while others do not. Check the requirements of the colleges you’re interested in before making your decision.
- Provide additional information: You may be asked to provide more information about your high school coursework, extracurricular activities, and college plans. This information helps the College Board connect you with potential scholarship opportunities.
- Upload a photo: You’ll need to upload a recent photo of yourself that meets the College Board’s photo requirements. This photo will appear on your SAT Admission Ticket, which you’ll need to bring with you on test day.
- Pay the registration fee: Review your registration information and proceed to the payment section. If you choose that option, you must pay the SAT registration fee (and the additional fee for the Essay portion) using a credit card or another accepted payment method.
- Review your confirmation: Once your payment is processed, you’ll receive an email with important details about your test date, including the test center address and when to arrive on test day.
- Print your SAT Admission Ticket: Log in to your College Board account before test day to print your SAT Admission Ticket. You’ll need to bring this ticket and an acceptable photo ID with you on test day.
Remember to prepare for the SAT by studying and taking practice tests. The College Board offers free SAT practice resources through their partnership with Khan Academy: https://www.khanacademy.org/sat.
