ACT Registration Policy
The ACT is offered six times per year (September, October, December, February, April, and June), typically on a Saturday. The fastest way to register is online via the ACT website. Students who are younger than 13 or who cannot pay by credit card must register by mail. Register-by-mail packets can also be requested through the ACT website.
The fee for taking the ACT (No Writing) is $34.00. The fee for the ACT Plus Writing is $49.50. The $15.50 Writing Test fee is refundable upon written request if you are absent on the date of the test day or if you switch to the ACT (No Writing) before testing begins.
The fee for changing your test date or testing center is $21.00. If you request a test date change after the regular deadline for the new date, you must also add the late fee. In this case, you will be charged the full basic fee for your new test date plus $21.00 ($42.00 if you register during the late period). Your basic fee for the original test date will be refunded.
