Returning Materials and Paying
Return test materials as soon as possible, and no later than the next school day after the test administration. Failure to return answer sheets promptly may delay score reports for your students and/or prevent them from entering National Merit Scholarship Program.
The PSAT/NMSQT is a school-based test. Students do not pay the College Board — schools do. It is also the responsibility of schools to request fee waivers on behalf of students who need them.
PSAT/NMSQT Coordinators compute their school’s test fees and generate a Remittance Report on PSAT/NMSQT Ordering. Printed reports should accompany payment.
These fees are paid by schools. The cost to a student may be different if the student qualifies for a fee waiver or if the school covers all or part of the cost. Students should check with their school to find out their test fees.
