Seniors sign up for College Entrance Tests if you have not already taken the test or if you would like to improve your score. Juniors are strongly encouraged to take either the ACT or SAT during the fall or winter of their junior year prior to the spring state testing date. The Thompson Falls High school code (CEEB) is 270-870. The CEEB code is needed for test registration. Fee waivers are available for students who qualify for the free/reduced lunch program. Be sure to compare extra-curricular schedules with test dates to avoid conflicts. The ACT & SAT are offered in Kalispell, Libby, Missoula, Noxon, and Plains as well. Please see Ms. Henderson for further information.

Ask your school counselor when your class will take the PSAT/NMSQT or the PSAT 10.
- Get a list of what materials to bring on test day and what to leave at home.
- Take a practice test to see what the tests are like and receive a personalized skills workout. Get free practice.
- Decide if you want to opt in to Student Search Service®.
- If you need College Board testing accommodations for students with disabilities, talk to your counselor.
- If you're homeschooled or testing outside the U.S., find out what to do.
You'll receive an email when your scores are available. To see your scores, get personalized feedback, and access free resources to help you plan for college, you'll need to log in to or create your College Board account.
That's it—if you're a student.

Who, Where, When
- Who: 11th and 10th graders
- Where: At school
- When: Wednesday, October 13, 2021 (Primary). Other options are Saturday, October 16 (Saturday) and Tuesday, October 26 (Alternate). (View the PSAT/NMSQT calendar.) Tests must be administered on the official administration day using the test books for that day. Testing with the wrong test book on the wrong day will result in scores being made ineligible for scholarship consideration. Test book covers will not feature dates this year but will be marked as either Primary, Saturday, or Alternate. Coordinators must take care to ensure the appropriate tests are used on the official date.
- Scholarships: Scores are used by scholarship programs, including the National Merit® Scholarship Program, to look for eligible students.
The 2021-22 tests cost schools $18 for each student—but you might not pay that much. Some schools cover all or part of the cost for their students. For details, ask your school.
Students with Disabilities
If you have a documented disability, you may be eligible for accommodations when you take the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10. Some available accommodations are extended time, extra and extended breaks, and reading and seeing accommodations (for example, large-type or Braille test books).
Approval Is Required
Accommodations must be approved by the College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities for students taking the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10 (as well as other College Board assessments including, but not limited to, the SAT, SAT Subject Tests and AP Exams). Scores will be canceled if accommodations are used without College Board approval.
