The College Board, which owns the SAT Test, is responsible for all issues relating to test registration, including full test centers, waiting lists, late registration, etc.

Copenhagen International School is a test location only; thus all questions, concerns, or issues relating to the SAT must be addressed to The College Board.

Please contact The College Board if you have any questions or issues regarding test registration.

The SAT test is available on our campus on the following dates

The SAT is going digital for all international test centers in the Spring of 2023. At this time, we have not confirmed test days for the digital test dates while we await more information from the College Board.  As soon as we have that information we will update the website.

Adding or opting out of the Optional Essay

If you have registered to take the SAT with essay, and change your mind, you are able to opt out of the essay the day of the test.

If you have registered for the SAT without essay, and change your mind, you may be able to add it on test day if test materials, rooms, and staff are available.

If you‘re able to switch on test day, there will be fees for which you will be billed. Learn about changing your registration information here.
