Updating SAT scores after submitting applications?

Hey everyone, I just submitted some of my college applications, but I was wondering: can I update my SAT scores after applying? If so, how would I go about doing that?

Yes, you can update your SAT scores after applying to colleges! Here's what you need to do:

1. Take the SAT again if you haven't already and wait for the new scores to be released. Make sure you are aware of each college's deadline for receiving updated test scores, as they may vary.

2. Once your new scores are available, log in to your College Board account and send the updated scores to the colleges where you applied. There might be a small fee associated with sending scores to each college, but you can request a fee waiver if you qualify.

3. It's a good idea to reach out to the admissions offices of the colleges you applied to and let them know that you have updated SAT scores coming their way. You can usually find their contact information on the college's website. Doing so will ensure that they are aware of the updated scores and include them in your application evaluation.

Keep in mind that it can take up to two weeks for colleges to receive your updated scores, so ensure you send them as soon as possible once they're released. If your scores arrive after the college's deadline for updated test scores, they might not be considered in the evaluation process. It's essential to stay on top of deadlines and communication with the admissions offices to ensure your scores are reviewed. Good luck!
