How to Register for the Digital SAT?

Digital SAT registration can be done in four easy steps, the first is creating an account on the official site, filling out the application form, choosing and booking the Digital SAT exam date, and finally, paying the charges. Since registration deadlines fall approximately 4 weeks before each Digital SAT exam date. Ensure that you book well within the deadlines.

STEP 1: Head over to College Board’s Official Website and set up your account. It’s a breeze – simply log in to your free College Board account, or if you don’t have one yet, create your very own by filling in some basic information about yourself. 


STEP 2: To complete your submission, it’s important to provide all the required details. This includes your full name and other identifying information. It’s crucial to ensure that the name and information you provide match exactly with what’s shown on your photo ID. So go ahead and double-check that you’ve got all your ducks in a row – we want to make sure everything goes smoothly for you!

Step 2

STEP 3: It’s time to select your exam and testing centre! Please note that for SAT registration in India, the only accepted forms of ID proof are a valid passport or Aadhaar card. Once you’ve got that squared away, it’s easy to choose your test date and location. Just pick the option that works best for you, and get ready to rock the exam!

Step 3

STEP 4: Upload a photo of you that meets the very specific photo requirements they have on the website.

The SAT exam fee is $60, plus a non-US charge. For non-US residents, regional exam fees are $49 and must be paid separately. Indian students must therefore pay a total of $109 to take the SAT.

Digital SAT Exam Cancellation Fees:

To cancel your registration, a fee of $25 is required. The benefits of any test fee waiver will be returned to you. 

Digital SAT Exam Rescheduling: 

To change the test date, you must cancel and register for a new test.

If you wish to change the test centre, you can do so for an additional fee of $25.

Late Registration Fees:

Registering after the regular deadline but before the late registration deadline incurs a fee of $30. This fee is waived for those who qualify for Test Fee Waivers.
