The College Board's Scoring Policy for the SAT
The College Board has approved an important change to the current SATŪ score-reporting policy. This policy will give students the freedom to send the scores by sitting (test date) that they feel best represent their ability to colleges and universities in the application process. Designed to reduce student stress and improve the test-day experience, this score-reporting feature will be "opt-in" and was first made available for students in the March 2009 administration at no additional cost to students.
This score-reporting feature also gives colleges the ability to choose which scores are required for admission. Colleges and universities will communicate any changes to their admissions policies or application requirements to students.
