To students scheduled to take the October 3, 2015 SAT administration: Last updated October 5, 3:58 pm

We are aware that in several Mid-Atlantic states, weather conditions have forced the cancellation of some October 3 administrations. That test has been rescheduled for October 17, 2015. Please be reassured that scores from the October 17 administration will reach us in time for Early Action consideration. Applicants should not be concerned that they will be disadvantaged by the timing of their tests. For additional information about test center closings, please see the College Board website.
