    Princeton Review SAT Preparation books are seen on March 6, 2014 in Miami, Florida, a day after the College Board announced a redesign of the SAT scheduled to take effect in early 2016.

    College applicants who recently took the SAT and ACT tests have been told that their scores may not be delivered in time to some schools with a November 1 deadline, due to a new electronic system that's experiencing delays, NBC News reported.

    On Tuesday, the College Board, the non-profit that administers the SAT, posted an update to their website that said all students are able to view their scores online, and "the majority of scores" had been delivered to colleges.

    The College Board promised to refund the $31 many students pay to rush their scores. "We are reaching out to affected colleges to ensure they understand the circumstances."

    The delay affected the ACT's reporting of students' written exam scores from September tests. In a statement on Facebook on October 30, the organization reported that all essays had been scored. Both the ACT and the College Board apologized for the inconvenience.

    Dr. Kat Cohen, founder of IvyWise, a college admissions consulting service, told NBC News it's "unacceptable that the College Board and ACT couldn't meet these important deadlines."
