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 2019-20, the official timetable is set in stone. But even though they're more uncertain, we can predict future years like 2021, 2022, and 2023 with decent confidence. These predictions have been updated in March 2020 to reflect the latest possible data.

For historical SAT test dates, check out our posts on past SAT test dates from 2018-19, 2017-18, 2016-17, 2015-16, and 2014 and before.

 

SAT Test Dates and Deadlines 2019-20

This year's upcoming test dates and registration deadlines are officially confirmed by the College Board.

Test Date Registration Deadline Late Registration Deadline
June 6, 2020 May 8, 2020 May 27, 2020

 

Note that the exam scheduled for May 2, 2020, has been canceled by the College Board due to the coronavirus, or COVID-19. At present, the June 6, 2020, exam is still scheduled to take place, but it's possible that this one will be canceled as well. We will update this article accordingly should that happen. Those who registered for the May 2 exam will be given a full refund.
