SAT - Account Set up
        - After registering for an SAT exam it's important to print out your Admissions Ticket found in your College Board account.  This is required in order to be allowed into the testing site on exam day.  PLEASE double check your site placement location information is correct and that you are fully aware of the exam location you have chosen or been placed into.  NHS has no control over your placement and we do not have access to your College Board account to make any last minute changes.  DO NOT wait until the day of the exam to check this information. It will be too late at that point to make any changes.  For issues with your College Board account or exam placement you must call the SAT student HELPLINE - (866)756-7346.
