When is the next SSAT test date?

The SSAT is administered at testing centers six times during the school year (August 1 to July 31). This is the traditional and most common way to take the exam. The exam is taken with pencil and paper.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, two new formats for taking the SSAT Middle Level and Upper Level have been introduced and will continue to be offered through the end of the 2021-2022 school year. 

  • The first new test format is the Prometric test center: Test dates are held year-round with exact dates depending on your test location. This SSAT will be the same as the paper-based versions, just taken on the computer.
  • The other option is taking the SSAT on the computer, at home. This requires having certain computer and system requirements, and the exam will be remotely proctored.

Below is a summary of upcoming SSAT dates and their application deadlines. You should register for the SSAT at least three weeks before the test date to avoid late fees.
