Ordering and Registration

Schools choose a test date and order all test materials online. They request fee waivers at the same time.

Choosing a Test Date

Parents and Students

Students sign up for the PSAT/NMSQT at school.

Schools use PSAT/NMSQT Ordering to choose between the Wednesday and Saturday test dates.

Schools unable to test on either date should write to the PSAT/NMSQT program on school letterhead to take the test on an alternate date. Mail requests for other testing arrangements to PSAT/NMSQT, P.O. Box 6720, Princeton, New Jersey 08541-6720.

Score reports and tools for the alternate test date will be the same as those for the Wednesday and Saturday test dates.

Test Formats for Students with Disabilities

After consulting with the SSD Coordinator, PSAT/NMSQT Coordinators order alternative test formats for students whose accommodations have been approved by the College Board. The following formats can be ordered online using the PSAT/NMSQT Coordinator site:

  • Braille
  • Large-type
  • Cassette
  • Reader’s script

Learn more about the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities.

Changing an Order

You can change any order until it has been processed for shipment. If your order has already been processed, place a supplemental order through the PSAT/NMSQT Coordinator site by the ordering deadline.

PSAT/NMSQT Test Material Shipments

All tests, including alternative formats, will be shipped to the test coordinator listed on the Update Coordinator Information page of the PSAT/NMSQT Coordinator site. To change coordinator information, sign in to the PSAT/NMSQT Coordinator site and click the update coordinator infolink in the “school info” box on the right side of the screen.

Optional Reports

Order the Student Data File or the School Summary Report online using the PSAT/NMSQT Coordinator site.
