Keep your phone at home on test day!
The use of phones and certain other electronic devices as noted below is prohibited within SAT test centers, and you should not bring these devices to the test center.
Prohibited devices include, but are not limited to:
- Cell phones or smart phones
- Audio players/recorders, tablets, laptops, notebooks, or any other personal computing devices
- Separate timers of any type
- Cameras or any other photographic equipment
- Any devices, including digital watches, that can be used to record, transmit, receive, or play back audio, photographic, text, or video content (with the exception of CD players used for Language with Listening Subject Tests only)
The test administration staff reserves the right to collect and hold phones and other prohibited electronic devices during the test administration, including during break periods, or to deny admission to anyone who is in possession of a phone or other prohibited electronic device.
If your device makes noise, or you are seen using it at any time, including during breaks, you may be dismissed immediately, your scores can be canceled, and the device may be confiscated and its contents inspected. The College Board is not responsible for loss or damage to personal items, including electronic devices, while you are in the test center.
