SENIORS: The October test might be your last chance to take the ACT and get your scores back in time for college application deadlines.
- A single point can close the gap between your college application and an acceptance letter.
- Improving your composite score could mean more scholarship money.
- 57% of students who took the ACT more than once improved their score.
JUNIORS: The ACT is so much more than a score. Get ahead and stay ahead by taking the test in October.
- Discover your academic strengths and help plan your courses.
- Use your in-depth score report to explore how your interests align with your intended college major or career goals.
- Uncover colleges and scholarship opportunities.
Don’t wait until it’s too late! Register by Friday, September 28 to avoid late fees!
