Registration is now open for public school juniors to take the SAT college readiness exam for free during on April 16, with a make-up day scheduled for April 30.
The free, school-day SAT administration for Delaware public school juniors began in 2011 and is funded by Delaware’s $119 million, federal Race to the Top grant.
“The SAT is an admission requirement for many colleges and universities,” Delaware education secretary Mark Murphy said. “Now every 11th-grade student in Delaware public schools has the opportunity to take the exam. This is especially important for those who may not have the means or incentive to do so on their own.”
Students can register for SAT School Day online at http://sat.collegeboard.org/schoolday/delaware through April 2. To register, students will need an email account, a free College Board online account, their EDUID state identification number and an SAT student voucher, available from their school counselors.
Every SAT registration includes up to four, free score reports that can be sent to colleges and scholarship services. Registering also enables students to participate in the College Board’s Student Search Service, through which students can let colleges, universities and scholarship programs know they are interested in hearing from them.
The Delaware Department of Education and the College Board also are providing all public school juniors with free access to the official SAT Online Course, as well as other free and low-cost SAT practice tools and resources, at http://sat.collegeboard.org.
