Welcome to the University of Dayton site for SAT testing! We hope the information posted here is helpful. Please read the following details carefully.
BE EARLY on test day. Reporting time is 7:45 a.m. If you are late, you will not be able to take the exam, and you will have to reschedule.
  • Your admission document/web ticket.
  • Your ID (see SAT website for what is acceptable).
  • Several #2 pencils that you can sharpen (no mechanical pencils of any kind). A sharpener will be available.
  • An approved calculator (see SAT website).
  • A jacket or sweater if you think you will be cold.

The SAT will be held at the University of Dayton River Campus located at 1700 S. Patterson Blvd during the 2014-15 academic year.  This was formerly NCR world headquarters.  It is located on Patterson directly across from the entrance to Carrillon Historical Park. 

Turn into the roadway toward 1700 Patterson, and bear to the right.  Students may be dropped off at the main entrance at the front of the building (by the lobby), or students may park in visitor parking in the south lot (R1).

Proctors will make every effort to hold the exam in inclement weather.  Proctors will postpone the exam if the University of Dayton is closed or Montgomery County has a Level 3 snow emergency.  Check for information on University closures.  Check the local news for information on local snow emergencies.  Please contact SAT for rescheduling information.  The safety of the students and their families is of the utmost importance.  Please use your best judgment on traveling in inclement weather.  If proctors hold the exams, but you don't feel safe traveling to it, you can contact SAT about rescheduling.
