Standard Test Dates & Registration Deadlines

​SSAT Standard Tests are held on eight Saturdays during the testing year (August 1 - July 31). Register early to avoid additional late fees and to ensure seating at your preferred test center, as rooms may fill up quickly.  

Testing normally begins at 9:00 am for all Standard tests, but testing times may vary, so check your admission ticket for the exact start time.  Make sure you arrive at least ​30 minutes early. 

A note regarding January 10, 2015 Standard test scores

Many schools have a January 15th application deadline.  Due to the holidays, the January SSAT date and subsequent score reporting from this test fall close to, but after, this date.  SSATB has been assured by some schools with January 15th deadlines that they will accept scores from the January 10th administration for admission decisions.  However, we recommend you contact the schools to which you are applying to confirm their requirements before registering for this test.​

Fee Waivers

If you are a student applying to an SSATB member school and you are unable to pay the test fee due to financial hardship, you may be eligible to receive an SSAT fee waiver. A limited number of fee waivers are available directly from SSATB member schoolsOnly one fee waiver can be applied at the time of registration.

Contact the admission office at the school to which you are applying and inquire about fee waiver availability. SSATB does not offer fee waivers directly to students/families.  You must obtain the fee waiver from a school before registering for a test. Fee waivers cannot be applied after test registration is completed. Fee waiver amounts are determined solely by the school and can be assigned for the full test fee or a partial payment. 

A fee waiver covers the test fee only and can be used as a full or partial payment. It cannot be applied toward late or rush fees, test change fees, score order fees, publications, or any fees that have already been paid. Any additional fees must be paid at the time of registration.
