Using PSAT/NMSQT Results
More than just a number, PSAT/NMSQT results help students prepare for the SAT, find AP courses, and connect to colleges and scholarships.
Appropriate Use of PSAT/NMSQT Scores
PSAT/NMSQT scores should be used to help students evaluate their skills and plan for college.
Scores are not intended for use by colleges in their admission decisions and are not sent to colleges. For this reason, scores should not be included on student transcripts that will be reproduced and sent to colleges unless the student (if 18 or older) or parent/guardian has granted permission.
Students have the right to withhold scores from college admission and athletic offices, even when colleges request them.
