Student should register with the Clearinghouse, prior to taking an SAT or ACT
When a prospective student athlete takes the SAT or the ACT, he/she must specify a specific code to have the test score sent directly to the Eligibility Centre. The Test Code for the NCAA Eligibility Centre is 9999.
You also receive four free score reports every time you register for the SAT. It is highly recommend that you take advantage of these reports, as additional reports are subject to a fee.
Also, using registration score reports ensures that test scores are sent to colleges as early as possible. Choosing your score recipients during the registration process ensures that colleges have the most complete set of your information to review for admission as well as scholarship awards, course placement, or selection to a specific program or major.
