ACT and SAT National Test Dates and Info
All test dates, info and registration occur online through each tests website. For ACT testing info, go to www.actstudent.org.
When you take the test, be sure to indicate which colleges you are considering. This way your test results automatically get sent to them. The ACT provides this service for free. If you need to send the results to a college you did not list, you will need to go to the ACT website and request your results be sent. ACT charges a fee for this. Some students choose to wait and send their scores to colleges after they have viewed the results. This is recommended if you plan to apply to highly selective colleges or universities, otherwise it is not necessary to wait.
