Future SAT test dates are only confirmed less than a year in advance, but we at PrepScholar have done the hard work of looking at past test date patterns to predict future SAT test dates and registration deadlines. For 2018-19, the official timetable is set in stone. But even though they're more uncertain, we can predict future years like 2020 and 2021 with decent confidence. These predictions have been updated in March 2019 to reflect the latest possible data.

For historical SAT test dates, check out our posts on past SAT test dates from 2017-18, 2016-17, 2015-16, and 2014 and before.
