The College Board is currently working on developing a range of supports. Here is the latest information we have received:
- The AP program is finalizing streamlined AP exam options that will allow students to test at home, depending on the situation in May. College Board is working to give every AP student the opportunity to claim the credit they have earned. The AP Program will communicate the details of these additional solutions to educators and students by March 20. Click here for the latest information from the AP Program.
- College Board will announce portfolio submission deadline extensions for AP 2-D Art and Design, 3-D Art and Design, Computer Science Principles, Drawing, Research, and Seminar courses by March 20. Schools do not need to call AP Services for Educators to request these extensions.

In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) and guidance from public health organizations, the College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020, SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. The College Board will provide refunds to all students who are registered for May, whose March test centers were closed, or who do not receive March scores due to an irregularity. (*please see attached email which was sent to students yesterday at approx. 5pm).
Together with our member schools and colleges, we will be flexible, thoughtful, and collaborative in exploring ways to continue to support student learning and provide opportunities to test during this challenging time.
- The College Board will be as flexible as possible to give students the best chance to show their skills and stay on the path to college.
- We'll provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations.
- We have not yet canceled the June 6, 2020, SAT national administration and will continue to assess its status with the health and safety of students and educators as our top priority.
- In the coming days, the College Board will share additional information and details directly with registered students and test centers. A webpage with regularly posted information about the impact of the virus on the SAT can be found here.
