My Scores Aren’t Out. What Do I Do?

If your SAT scores didn’t come out with the others, that can be very frustrating. In every single batch of SAT scores that are released, there is almost always a group of people who don’t get their scores back in a timely fashion. There are many reasons for this. Boxes of tests are lost, misplaced, or mis-handled. Statistical outliers are held back for additional screening. Scores are also delayed if foul-play is suspected.

Before you invest too much time, check whether other students are receiving their scores. Sometimes the entire batch of SAT scores has been delayed. Check out the SAT sub Reddit, where there will be dozens of students furiously discussing score release. If scores are delayed in bulk, there will be a discussion thread on it for certain.

If other students have received their scores, and there is no note posted on your account at collegeboard.org, then you’ll need to contact College Board customer support for more information. You can do that at 1 (866) 630-9305.
