Multiple extracurricular events will impede many middle and high school students' availability to take the PSAT on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016 the previously scheduled date for administration.
As such, we feel it is necessary to move the PSAT administration to Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016.
We regret any inconvenience this change might cause, but it is important that all interested students have the opportunity to take the test.
Here's what you need to know:
The deadline for student registrations will be extended to Thursday Sept. 22.
Because the PSAT will be administered on a school day, each middle and high school will serve as its own individual PSAT test site and test its own students on Oct. 19.
There are no changes to the eligibility or funding for taking the test. Current 11th grade students who have a GPA of 4.5625 and above will not incur a fee. Eleventh grade students with a GPA below 4.5625 and all other students pay the $15 exam fee to the school. REMEMBER: the College Board does grant waivers for students who have financial need, and your school can request one for any student in need.
Contact your child's school if you have questions.
