When is the Test Offered?
The SSAT can be taken on any of 8 regular administrations per academic year, or a student can schedule a time to take the test at an independent testing center. The regular administrations for the test are usually held at the beginning or middle of October, November, December, January, February, March, April, and June. Registration for all testing dates open in August. You are allowed to take the SSAT exam as many times as you wish.
To find all the information you need about registering for the SSAT, visit www.ssat.org. After you register for the test, you will be able to print an Admission Ticket, which will include the date and location of your test. There is a fee associated with taking the exam. If you miss the regular deadline to register, there are additional fees. If you are unable to pay the test fee, you may be eligible for a Fee Waiver. If this the case, contact the Admissions Office of the school to which you are applying before registering for the exam. Fee Waivers are not available directly from the SSAT Office.
