Higher Ed Services

The ACT® college readiness assessment leads to college success by providing colleges and universities with an excellent information base for recruiting, advising, and retaining students.

When students are ready for college, dropout rates and remediation costs are lower and more students persist in and graduate from college. ACT research related to college readiness and college success is rich and extensive and offers insights about the impact of readiness on college success.
