The ACT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The purpose of the ACT test is to measure a high school student's readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.
The ACT is a graduation requirement. Meaning every student must take the exam at least once before graduation.
Accessing Scores in MyACT.org
Once the scoring process is completed, students will receive their scores in the mail, if they provided their correct mailing address during testing. Their scores will also be available in MyACT. Their mailed score report will contain a supplement providing them with information on how to create a MyACT account that will successfully link to their state testing scores, using their uniquely assigned ACT ID number included on their mailed report. We will include this supplement and a MyACT Quick Start Guide on your ACT State testing webpage, in the Interpretation section. Please share the information with your Director of Counseling. If your students have trouble creating or accessing their scores, or if they created an account without using their ACT ID number, please have the students contact ACT Customer Care at https://www.act.org/content/act/en/contact-act.html for assistance.
