To help students and families affected by Hurricane Irma, the College Board is offering free SAT registration in November.

The waiver is only available in FEMA-designated counties, which includes all Bay Area counties.

The college board is also waiving a fee to create a CSS profile for financial aid.

"We understand this is a difficult time for those who are struggling as a result of the storm. We hope this measure can ease some worry for students and ensure their college-going plans are minimally affected during storm recovery efforts," the College Board wrote in a press release.

To register or contact Customer Service call 866-756-7346 from now until October 25. You can also call that number if you or your child is already registered to take the test and you need a refund.

For the CSS Profile fee waiver, students should go to, complete their application, and the system will automatically apply eligibility rules. To reach CSS Profile Customer Service, please call 844-202-0524.
