Ho long does it take for the scores to get to a college?

annoyingorangeannoyingorange Registered User Posts: 227 Junior Member
I placed an order on 10/29. I go to a school where the guidance counselors are complete garbage so they don't know or tell us anything, but a friend told me that apparently it takes 1 to 2 weeks? Thankfully my credentials have to be in by Nov 15, not the 1st. What's your experience with the score reports? How long did it take for you guys?

    I placed mine on October 4th. Half of them are still pending. This is what collegeboard says:

    An Update on Electronic Score Report Delivery for the SAT

    Last modified: Oct. 30, 2015

    Beginning with the October 2015 SAT administration, the College Board is delivering score reports to colleges through a new electronic reporting system.

    At this time, all students are able to view their scores online, and the majority of scores have been delivered to colleges.

    We are in the final stages of processing the remaining score reports. With the exception of a few colleges, we anticipate that we will be able to deliver reports to meet application deadlines. For the few outstanding colleges, we are resolving technical issues and are planning to deliver scores within a timeframe that will allow the institutions to use those scores for early action/early decision applications. These colleges understand the circumstances and are working with us to resolve the issue in the best interest of students.

    In the meantime, we are updating students and colleges by email as soon as information becomes available.

    We understand that this is stressful for affected students. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused families and colleges.


    Its causing stress all right
