College bound students can sign up for the next ACT test
The next ACT test will be administered on December 8. Students who wish to take the college admission and placement exam must register by November 2 – the deadline for having the registration postmarked.
There is a late registration postmark deadline of November 15; an extra fee is charged for late registrations. Students can register online at www.actstudent.org , or registration forms can be picked up at high school counseling offices.
The cost is $30 for the traditional ACT and $44.50 for the ACT Plus Writing. Some colleges require ACT's optional Writing Test score, but many don't, so students should find out the requirements of prospective colleges before registering for the exam. ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the United States.
ACT's website ( www.actstudent.org ) has helpful information, sample tests and the opportunity to order inexpensive test prep materials.
