On SAT test day, testing begins  at 8 a.m. and dismissal occurs after noon. Students are encouraged to eat breakfast and bring a snack, and are reminded to bring their admission ticket and photo ID. Admission tickets with photos that do not meet the following criteria will not be accepted, and the student will not be admitted to testing that day:

  • The photo must show only the student, fully facing the camera, with no one else in the image.
  • It must be head and shoulders only; no full body photos are accepted.
  • There must be nothing obscuring the student’s face, such as hair, hands, shadows or glare.
  • The photo must be easily recognizable as the student and must match how the student will appear on test day.

School system career technicians Andy Gossard and Patrice Davis, along with counselors in each high school, are available to help students with SAT registration and photos.
