SAT Scores - Common App Confusion

I've got my SAT scores, and I know some colleges want them sent directly, but how do I submit SAT scores on Common App? Is self-reporting just inputting the score, or is there more to it? Let me know, please!

SAT scores are indeed an important piece of your college application, and it's great that you're taking the initiative to get them submitted correctly! Self-reporting your SAT scores on the Common App simply involves inputting your highest score from each section and your highest combined score into the Testing section of the application. If you've taken the SAT more than once, you have the option to report all your scores, but it’s not required by all colleges. Make sure to check each college's testing policy on their admissions website for specifics – some might want all your scores, while others might just want your best ones.

Additionally, some colleges do require you to eventually send official score reports directly from the College Board if you're admitted and decide to enroll. This is to verify the scores you self-reported. Remember to double-check the application requirements for each school you're applying to so you don't miss any steps. Good luck with your application process!
