College Entrance Tests
You must sign up for the test at your high school or one in your community. The test is administered by high schools, not through test centers. If you want to take the PSAT/NMSQT, contact your local high school counselor or principal to find out about registering for the test, paying test fees, and learning the correct date, time, and location of the test. Also, contact your guidance office for a copy of the Official Student Guide to the PSAT/NMSQT to help you prepare.
Homeschool Code for the PSAT – 993 799
Note: The fee for the PSAT/NMSQT usually under $20. Schools sometimes charge an additional fee to cover administrative costs. The College Board makes fee waivers available to schools for juniors from low-income families who can’t afford the test fee. See your counselor for more information about fee waivers.
PSAT Registration is not available online. Register through your local high school.

That’s also how you’ll register for SAT II Subject Tests, which assume a high school level knowledge base. They are one-hour, multiple-choice tests in specific subjects. As a homeschooler, you could consider taking one or more subject tests to demonstrate your academic strengths to colleges. Some colleges require homeschoolers to take one or more subject tests for admission or placement. These are available on the same day as the SAT, with the exception of March 10 which is Sat I only.
