Future SAT Administrations, Including September 26
If it’s safe from a public health standpoint, we’ll provide weekend SAT administrations every month through the end of the calendar year, beginning in August. This includes a new administration on September 26 and the previously scheduled tests on August 29, October 3, November 7, and December 5.
All students can register for the November or December SAT administration at this time.
We're offering weeklong priority registration for August, September, and October administrations are available to the following groups:
- Students who registered for June SAT or SAT Subject Tests™ and didn't cancel their registrations
- Students in the class of 2021 without a test score
- Students in the class of 2020 without a test score
Registration for August, September, and October administrations will open for all students on June 3 at 8 p.m. Eligible students can register with a fee waiver.

For students who are eligible for a fee waiver: As always, eligible students will be able to take the SAT with a fee waiver. To learn more about weekend fee waivers, visit our SAT fee waiver page.
If you receive Free or Reduced lunch at school then you are eligible for fee waivers for the ACT & SAT tests, in addition to college application fee waivers. Email Ms. Connors at PConnors@horrycountyschools.netfor more information.
For each administration, we’re preparing to significantly expand our capacity for students to take the SAT once schools reopen. We’re calling on our member schools and colleges, as well as local communities, to provide additional test center capacity so every student who wants to take the SAT can do so.
