Online Testing Postponed Due to COVID-19
ACT postponed the introduction of online testing to protect the health and safety of students and test center staff. This will allow test centers to focus on providing a successful paper administration of the ACT test in an enviroment that respects social distancing guidelines.
Choose to test online or on paper at an ACT test center.
Students will be able to choose how they want to take the ACT test®—online or on paper, if their testing center offers both options. Students who test online will get results in as soon as two business days for more opportunities to meet admission and scholarship deadlines.
