Some colleges and universities use Social Security numbers as student identifiers when assigning or tracking scores. While the College Board does not require you to provide your Social Security number, you may want to check with the college or university where you are sending scores to see if they prefer for you to provide a Social Security number. Students do not need to bring the actual card with them on testing day; however they CANNOT guess at the number.

Students who show that their disabilities affect participation in a College Board exam are eligible to take those exams with accommodations. All accommodations must be approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD). For further information on the SSD approval process, required documentation and submission process, please visit the College Board SSD webpage here. Students who have been approved by the College Board for testing accommodations will need to include a copy of the Eligibility Letter from the College Board that includes a 10-digit SSD number.

Prior to the administration of the PSAT/NMSQT or AP test, students will need to participate in a Pre-Administration session. Further information about the Pre-Administration session date and time are available on the registration form and in the confirmation letter each student will receive after he/she is registered.

Students will need to create or login to their existing Student Account to access their PSAT or AP score report(s). College Board will release scores online. Plano ISD will mail PSAT test booklets to students after scores are released.

For specific information regarding the PSAT/NMSQT test and Advanced Placement (AP) tests please visit the College Board website. There you will find information about exam dates, exam day policies, calculator policies and log-in screen to access your College Board Student Account.
