ACT Registration and Test Dates: ACT Test Schedule
The National ACT is a college entrance examination that is required for
entrance to colleges and universities in Arkansas and the majority of
the central states. The Scholastic Achievement Test, another college
entrance exam, is primarily used in the east and west coast states. The
ACT is composed of four (4) sections: English, Math, Reading, and
Science. The maximum score in each area is a 36. The average score from
the four (4) sections is called the composite score; this is the score
that colleges and universities look at when considering admission and
scholarships. ACT will grade these tests, and the results will be mailed
directly to students in four to six weeks.
$29.00 Basic Fee
$47.00 Late Fee (Basic + $18.00 Late Fee)
$65.00 Standby Fee (Basic + $36.00 Late Fee)
NOTE: ACT registration packets are available at the University Testing
office and are sent with payment to ACT. University Testing does not
accept payments or register people for the National ACT.
Examinees report on a Saturday at 7:30 a.m. several times during each
academic school year. See the following page for test dates for this
academic school year.
WAIT TIME BETWEEN TESTS
Students taking the ACT National test have to wait until the next
