Taking the SAT

Taking the SAT

Students planning to go study in the States may be  required to complete one of two aptitude tests, the SAT or the ACT. Students must follow the registration deadlines for international students. 

CEGEP Champlain-St. Lawrence is no longer an authorized SAT test center. You can view other test centers through the College Board Website. 

Students wishing to take the SAT will have to plan to take the test in another location. Click here to view the calendar.

Regardless of where you take the test, you must register online at http://sat.collegeboard.org and pay your testing fees to the College Board.

If you cannot find or do not have a high school code (post-secondary), you may enter the following number: 000004
