On Wednesday, October 13th 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. More information on the PSAT can be found at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/inside-the-test and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=litF6egkRKE
The PSAT/NMSQT 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 13th, students will report directly to their testing room at the start of the school day. Testing will run through the 5th period. Testers will be excused from their morning classes on test day. If you have any questions about the testing experience or you need additional information, contact your student’s school counselor.
Junior students register for the PSAT online through their Push Coin (https://store.ipsd.org/#!/products/EX3TB7LR47) accounts. Juniors may add a PSAT/NMSQT registration through the Push Coin webstore. Registrations will be accepted from August 15th through Tuesday, September 14th. A Push Coin receipt indicates that the exam registration has been successfully completed. Please print a copy for your records. If you do not receive a receipt, you are NOT registered and will not be able to test. Waubonsie Valley is only accepting PSAT registrations for juniors. Registrations for other grade levels will be canceled.
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, Tuesday, September 14th 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. If you believe you qualify for this fee reduction, please contact the Waubonsie Valley financial secretary Liz_dilday@ipsd.org. Because this is an optional assessment, fees are not covered in full.
We understand that on rare occasions students must cancel an exam. Students who cancel an exam by Tuesday, September 14th are entitled to a refund of $20.00. There will be no refunds after September 14th.
