The SAT is a standardized test created and administered by the College Board. The SAT is accepted by all U.S. colleges and universities. It consists of 3 tests – Reading, Writing and Language and Math – for a total test length of 3 hours. The total score on the SAT is between 400 – 1600.
The College Board has begun the transition to a digital SAT and PSAT for U.S. and International students. By spring 2024, all U.S. and International students will take a digital PSAT and SAT. Critical changes to the new, digital SAT include a shortened test to 2 hours instead of 3, use of an adaptive testing format, shorter reading passages, and calculators allowed throughout.

The SAT is offered nationally every year in August, October, November, December, March, May, and June.
