Class of 2021: Register for the PSAT by 9/16
PSAT/NMSQT Testing Information for Juniors
On October 16th Waubonsie Valley will offer the PSAT/NMSQT Test to any junior interested in registering for the test. This test is recommended for college-bound juniors who fall within the top tier of their class. The PSAT is the only qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship Program. The National Merit program awards several prestigious honors for students who score in the 98th or higher percentile of the standardized exam. The PSAT student guide can be found at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-nmsqt-student-guide.pdf
The PSAT registration fee is $23. Please follow the steps listed below to complete the registration process. Students registering for the test will receive testing room information prior to the test date. On October 16th, students report directly to their testing room at the start of the day. Testing will run through 5th period. If students’ regularly scheduled lunch falls during the testing period, they will be given a pass to eat lunch following the test and then report to their next scheduled class. This is not an early dismissal day for any student, including the students testing. If you have any questions about the testing experience or you need additional information, contact your student's counselor.
Students register for the PSAT online through their Push Coin ( https://www.pushcoin.com/ ) accounts. Juniors may add a PSAT/NMSQT registration through the Push Coin webstore (http://ipsdweb.ipsd.org/uploads/Lunch/WebstoreParentInstructions.pdf ). Registrations will be accepted from August 30th through September 16th. A confirmation page indicates that the exam registration has been successfully completed. Please print a copy for your records. If you do not see a confirmation page and receive a receipt, you are NOT registered and will not be able to test!
Waubonsie Valley is excited to offer families the ability to pay their exam fees of $23 directly through their Push Coin accounts with no need to go through an additional 3rd party vendor. Payment is not accepted at WVHS. Registrations that are not paid by 11:59 PM, Monday, September 16th will be cancelled, and those exams will not be ordered.
Students who qualify for Free/Reduced lunch will receive a discount on their PSAT registration fee. The discounted registration fee of $10 will be automatically applied once the PSAT/NMSQT is added to your Push Coin cart. Because this is an optional assessment, fees are not covered in full. Students who require additional fee assistance should contact their school counselor before September 16th.
We understand that on rare occasions students must cancel an exam. Students who cancel an exam by Monday, September 16th are entitled to a refund of $20.00. There will be no refunds after September 16th.
