PSAT/NMSQT (optional) - October 5, 2023

On Thursday, October 5th, 2023, we will be administering the PSAT NMSQT at Fossil Ridge High School. The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a standardized test administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) in the United StatesWe have prioritized seats for Juniors and a small number of seats for Sophomores to take this exam.  Sophomores who sign up are unable to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship, so for our tenth-grade testers, this test functions as a practice exam. 

 There is a $22 charge for the PSAT NMSQT.  This charge offsets the cost of the test and administrative costs related to the optional PSAT test for National Merit Qualifiers.  (Please note: the required PSAT/SAT testing in the spring is provided free of charge).  Registration opens on Monday, August 28th. To register, log in to School Pay and search for PSAT Test:  10th Grade 2023-2024 -OR- PSAT Test: 11th Grade 2023-2024.  This registration process honors first-come, first-served, and the deadline to register is on/before Friday, September 29th at 10:59 PM MST.
