SAT Registration – Instructions for International Students

International students (i.e. students outside the USA) can register for the SAT in any one of the following ways:

  • Online Registration

  • The form can be mailed with a copy of The Paper Registration Guide for the SAT and the SAT Subject Tests. This should be available at their school

  • Through an International Representative of the SAT



Online Registration is the easiest form of registration and offers the following benefits to students:

  1. Students can choose their test date and center in real time

  2. They get registration confirmation immediately

  3. In addition, they are given 24-hour access to registration for printing or correcting their Admission Ticket.


Alternatively, students who do not have access to online SAT registration services may also visit an Education USA advising center in their city or region to learn more about college admission testing. Very often, these centers also offer SAT registration materials and computers for students to register online.

If you wish to register for the SAT through an SAT International Representative, students should complete the following steps:

  1. The paper Registration Form must be completed and enclosed in the registration envelope that is provided with SAT Subject Tests and The Paper Registration Guide for The SAT.
  2. The name and address of the correct SAT Representative must be printed on the blank label provided, and it must be placed on the envelope as directed by the SAT.
  3. The method of payment must be acceptable, and according to the instructions in the registration booklet.
  4. Credit cards are not accepted by SAT representatives for SAT registrations.
  5. The registration along with full payment must reach the Representative's office by the deadline set for early registration.


  • Students can search for an overseas test center in the Student area of The College Board website. They should ensure that they select a center that is within reach of their home.
  • Students can locate an international representative from the College Board website.
  • In India and Pakistan, Sunday testing and testing closer to home options are not available. A security fee is payable for testing in Pakistan or India. Further details of the same are available on the College Board website.
