2019 PSAT/NMSQT Registration
Each year between eight and fifteen Okemos High School juniors are honored as National Merit Semi-finalists by earning a qualifying score on the PSAT/NMSQT. National Merit Semi-finalists tend to be students who have taken advanced courses and have a strong academic profile. Historically, many juniors and some sophomores have taken the PSAT/NMSQT for practice with standardized testing. All sophomores will take the PSAT10 in the spring of 2019 and therefore will not participate in the PSAT/NMSQT this October.
While any junior is welcome to take the PSAT/NMSQT, students who are seeking to do so for practice are better served by utilizing the free, comprehensive and personalized SAT preparation resources made available by Khan Academy. Visit https://www.khanacademy.org/sat for more information.
For the 2019 PSAT/NMSQT, students will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.
Online exam registration will begin on Monday, August 19, 2019 at 7:00 AM. Regular registration begins August 19, 2019 and ends September 18, 2019. The cost for the PSAT/NMSQT is $25.00. Students who register after September 18, 2019 through October 14, 2019 will be charged a $10.00 late fee.
In order to register, students should visit www.TotalRegistration.net/PSAT/232850 . To complete registration, students must answer all of the required questions. Registration is not complete until students have printed the pdf of the confirmation page that is provided at the end.
Okemos High School is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a debit or credit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made.

- Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 11:59 PM - Regular Registration Ends
