Test Registration

Test Registration by Students

When a student registers with College Board directly for a College Board test, we collect certain personally identifiable information.

For SAT Weekend, we may ask for the following information: legal name (first, middle if any, last), email address, mailing address, mobile phone number (optional), date of birth, gender, race/ethnicity (optional), high school name, date of expected high school graduation, grade level, parent education level, parent military relation (optional), first and best language (optional), and GPA . A photo is required. An optional student profile may be created as part of the student’s SAT registration with information about the student, their interests, and future plans.

For CLEP, we may ask for the following information: legal name (first, middle if any, last), preferred first name (optional), email address, mailing address, phone number, race/ethnicity (optional), gender, best language, highest year completed in school, current education level, whether home schooled, the type of institution in which the student is currently enrolled, and whether remote proctor accommodation(s) may be requested. Military personnel registering for a DANTES-funded CLEP exam are also required to supply their branch of service, military status, current pay grade, and Social Security number, based on requirements set by the U.S. government.

This information will be kept secure and added to the student’s College Board record to be used for test administration and score reporting purposes, purposes specified in the Privacy Statement, as well as the other purposes outlined in the test-specific materials, if any, including online registration process, digital testing app or answer sheet instructions, and other student guides and resources.

This information is shared with the student’s school, district, and/or state department of education.

To process any registration payment(s), credit card information will be collected and processed by a third-party payment processor.

Test Registration and Ordering by Education Institutions

If a school participates in SAT School Day or PSAT-related test administrations and/or bulk registration processes for these tests, College Board may receive the student’s personal information, including (depending on the education institution) first name, middle initial, last name, grade, gender, date of birth, student ID, and mailing address from the student’s school. This information will be kept secure and used only as necessary to provide the assessment(s) and educational services to the schools, districts, and state departments of education, and is provided back to the student and their educational institution for which College Board is providing services. College Board does not disclose any student personally identifying information of students participating in the SAT School Day or PSAT-related test administrations to any third parties, other than as detailed in the agreement between College Board and the educational institution, our Privacy Statement, and the Testing Rules to which students agree.

For AP Exams, a student’s school’s AP coordinator will order the exam materials through College Board’s AP Registration and Ordering. In MyAP, students may register or confirm their existing registration for an AP Exam, which informs their test coordinator that the student plans to take the exam so that they may order it for the student and collect exam fees from the student. Once a school has ordered AP Exams, the school may contract with a vendor to collect the exam fees from students and remit those student payments to College Board.

For ACCUPLACER, educational institutions register students for the test and the student is given the opportunity to verify and update their information. College Board may collect the following student information: legal name (first, middle if any, last), email address, mailing address, student ID, mobile phone number (optional), date of birth, gender, race/ethnicity (optional), and whether the student is enrolled in high school. Educational institutions may ask optional questions of the student to help guide placement decisions, such as information about the student, their parent/guardian level of education, their first and best language, their interests, and future plans.
