when do you have to submit your SAT scores?

<p>When do I have to submit my scores? do they have to be in by the application deadline?
I'm really confused, I'm going to retake the SAT in october, does that mean I wont be able to apply anywhere until I find out my scores??
Can you fill out applications and send them my scores later?</p>

<p>*When do I have to submit my scores? do they have to be in by the application deadline? *</p>

<p>by the deadline specified by the college. You can usually update scores after the application deadlne, though there is often a deadline for that as well.</p>

<p>*Can you fill out applications and send them my scores later? *</p>

<p>yes, as long as the SAT is submitted after the deadline specified by the admission office.</p>

<p>You need to check your schools as to actual rules for each but:</p>

<p>You can always submit application before you submit your scores as long as you are not applying at the last second in which case you might have to send your scores at the same time and you might not. If you are applying early decision or early action with a Nov 1 app deadline, then every college that does so accepts October test scores even if they arrive after the deadline, and in fact, majority of those accept Nov test scores for ED or EA even though you don't take that test until after you apply. To avoid any issues of possible delay you should designate the college as one of those to receive scores on your application for the test.</p>

<p>UCs, which have a Nov 30 app deadline, accept scores through the December test date.</p>

<p>As to colleges which have an early Jan app deadline for regular admission, they accept through the Dec test and a number accept the Jan test.</p>
