PSAT Scores Available On-Line
If students provided an e-mail address when they took the PSAT in October, then they should have received an e-mail from the College Board with information about how to access their PSAT scores on-line. The student should check for this e-mail first.
Students not receiving an e-mail can access their PSAT scores on-line at this site.
https://studentscores.collegeboard.org/home
To create a College Board account, students need to click the "Sign Up" button. They need to use the exact same name and birth date that they used for the PSAT. Other directions can be found on the sign in page.
If they are still unable to see their scores, then they may need an access code from the Guidance and Counseling Office. Students should stop by to get that code.
Other questions can be directed to the College Board Student Help Line at 866-433-7728 or e-mail at psathelp@info.collegeboard.org
