Now is also a good time to encourage your students to create an online account with the College Board (collegeboard.org). While students are not required to create an account to participate in the Michigan Merit Exam, with a College Board account, students can access their SAT, PSAT, and AP scores online and send them to colleges. Having an account also lets them manage their personal college lists, save scholarship searches, and compare costs at colleges that interest them. Setting up an account is simple, takes only a few minutes, and just involves a few steps:
Go to collegeboard.org • Click on “Sign Up” in the upper left-hand corner • Select “I am a Student” • Provide contact information • Create a user name and password • Read and agree to the Terms & Conditions Students should be prepared to answer basic questions, including name, sex, date of birth, email address, high school name, expected high school graduation date, and zip code. They can also provide a parent’s name and email address and opt-in to receive important reminders about deadlines, test preparation strategies, score availability, and more.
