How Long Are SAT Scores Valid?

SAT test scores do not expire. After high school and at least 1 year has passed since a last SAT test attempt, answers from past tests are deleted and test scores are archived. Test scores remain available for retrieval and reporting to schools and educational organizations at any time according to tester instructions.

A student can request that an archived score be retrieved and reported by mail or by telephone. Standard score reporting fees apply. An additional fee is assessed when a score must be retrieved from the archive. As of 2014, that fee amounts to $30.50 per order.
