 PSAT/NMSQT® Information for Students and Parents


The 2023 PSAT/NMSQT®​ will be administered digitally beginning fall 2023. For fall 2023, the Georgia Department of Education will continue to fund the 2023 PSAT/NMSQT®​ for all Georgia public high schools sophomores. 

For more information, please visit the this College Board blog​.

Students who pay to take the PSAT/NMSQT® as a junior are eligible to be considered for National Merit Scholarship.  Confer with your student’s counselor in August about ordering the PSAT/NMSQT® for your junior.

PSAT/NMSQT​® and Home Schooled Students

If you are a home-schooled student or parent of a home-schooled student, contact a principal or counselor at a local public, parochial or independent high school to make arrangements to take the PSAT/NMSQT® at their school.  Be sure to do so well in advance of the mid-October test dates, preferably during the previous June.

If you're a home-schooled student, your PSAT/NMSQT®​ score report is sent directly to your home address.  On the test day, when completing the basic information on the answer sheet, be sure to enter your state's home school code in the "school code" section.  The test supervisor will provide this for you.
