College Board, which runs SAT, AP exams, fined $730K by NYS for selling student data

The College Board will have to pay a $750,000 settlement with the New York Attorney General’s Office, which said the organization unlawfully shared students’ personal data with organizations such as colleges and scholarship programs.

Attorney General Letitia James’ office said Tuesday that the College Board, a nonprofit that administers the PSAT, SAT and AP tests, shared the data of 237,000 New York students in 2019.

In addition to the fine, the College Board “will be prohibited from monetizing New York students’ data that it acquires through its contracts with New York schools and school districts,” the statement said.
