PLAN FOR COLLEGE WITH THE PSAT/NMSQT TEST


JUNIORS: This is your only opportunity to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Programs. 


The PSAT is open to all 11th & 10th graders who opt to test. It is a challenging academic exam, emphasizing English and Math. Less than the top 2% of all testers nationally qualify as National Merit Finalists. 


Registration for the PSAT is available online only August 28 - September 7, 2023.

NO LATE REGISTRATIONS MAY BE ACCEPTED.
The cost for the test is $25 which can be paid for with a credit or debit card online. 
We have a limited number of exams available so please place your order early to ensure that you get an exam.

Testing Accommodations for the PSAT: an IEP, 504 plan, or other disability does not automatically guarantee testing accommodations for the PSAT. Approval for testing accommodations must be granted by College Board. Please allow up to 7 weeks for approval. If you wish to request accommodations for testing, email kottmannjennifer@rsdmo.org and/or your child's case manager.
