The College Board has updated its programs and exams due to the COVID-19 crisis.

College Board conferences, A Dream Deferred™, Prepárate, PowerFAIDS, and ACCUPLACER, are all canceled.

The SAT exams scheduled for May and June 2020 have also been canceled and so have SAT Subject Tests. Students who signed up for any of these exams will be issued refunds from the College Board.

According to the College Board website, if it is safe to do so SAT exams will be held each month starting in August.

The College Board still plans to hold AP Exams. The exams will be May 11 to May 22 and taken entirely online at home. 

The exams will test 75% of the course’s content and have been shortened to 45 minutes, with 5-minute intervals to upload work. The exams will be open-note and are still eligible for college credit with the same requirement of receiving a score of “3” or higher.
