Before anything else, check out this list of colleges that have moved toward test-optional and test-blind policies. Many colleges are more lenient in 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Those who have decided on a test-blind policy, will not even look at tests. So, make sure you have the lay of the land before you start.

If your desired colleges still require the test (or you want to boost your application with a high SAT score), get ready to mark your calendar — you can find all of the current SAT dates for 2021-2022, registration deadlines, and score release dates below.
