What time do the SAT scores get posted online?

I took the SAT May 4th and it says they'll be up tomorrow. What time can I expect them? (I'm on the west coast.)

    Definitely not 8 AM EST, I live in New Jersey, and for the October SAT saw my scores at 5:30 AM.

    @cagg333 College Board says it's 8 AM EST. They may post a little earlier unofficially? But it definitely is 8 AM EST at least officially. Check Collegeboard website: SAT Reasoning Test - Receiving SAT Scores
    "Students can view their scores on the Web by signing in to My SAT after 8 a.m. Eastern Time on the dates listed above."

    But thanks for letting us know that it's sometimes posted earlier than they say... I guess I will check before I head to school just in case.

    It's FIVE AM. It always has been. IDK what's with that link but I can 100% guarantee it's always five am.Trust me :)

    I think the statement quoted by humanities2014 is true. Students can view their scores by signing in after 8 a.m. They can also view their score next month, next Saturday, ... and, probably as in the past, at 5 a.m. tomorrow - The linked page doesn't state when they are posted. Don't forget to apply critical reading skills!

    Right - they pop up at 5AM EST. Best of luck to all!

    it's kinda funny that you are saying "what's up with that link". Sorry that's COLLEGEBOARD LINK.

    Whatever you experienced last time, the official time is EIGHT A.M. at the latest. Probably you WILL be able to see your score after 5a.m., but I was talking about the official time, which COLLEGEBOARD SAYS that 8a.m.. Say "To my experience." I mean, I would still check it at 5am, since that's when the score is coming out by practice, but I wouldn't say it's five am using all caps and completely ignoring Collegeboard website lol. So you now have more authority than college board? The best way to phrase the answer is, "It usually comes out at 5 by practice, but officially it shouldn't be later than 8." Good luck with your score.

    Woahwoahwoahhh no need to get feisty (@ humanities) haha. But anyways, yeah you can practically expect scores to be out by 5AM EST :D & :(

    (also lol at how humanities was trying to be all grammatically correct but messed up at the very end when he/she forgot the ")

    Best of luck to all!
