The PSAT is administered every year in October by schools, not testing centers. Contact your principal or guidance counselor to register; online registration is not available.


The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program co-sponsored by the College Board and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).  It gives students in 11th grade a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools.  Visit the NMSC’s website to learn more.
