SAT test center closings: how to stay up-to-date?

Hi everyone! I know sometimes SAT test centers might close due to various reasons, but I'm not sure how to stay informed about this. Where can I check if my test center is closed or not? Also, what should I do if it happens?

Hi there! Staying informed about SAT test center closings is important so you can make necessary adjustments if needed. The College Board website is the best source for staying up-to-date on any SAT test center closings. They have a dedicated page for test center closings (https://satsuite.collegeboard.org/sat/test-center-closings), which is updated frequently, especially in the days leading up to the test.

In addition, they often send emails to students registered at a closed test center. To ensure you receive these emails, make sure your contact information is updated in your College Board account. It's still a good idea to check the website as well, just to be on the safe side.

If you find that your test center is closed, the College Board usually tries to assign affected students to an alternative test center. They will notify you via email with updated testing information. Sometimes, however, alternative test centers may be too far away or already full.

In these cases, you can either opt to take a refund for the test fee or reschedule for the next available test date. To do this, log into your College Board account or contact their customer service for assistance.

Remember to stay calm if your test center is closed. It might be frustrating, but be assured the College Board will be working to help affected students find alternative solutions. Good luck on your SAT!
