Exploring the Possibilities
ACT Profile helps you get ready for the next steps toward college or career with tools and resources that address three important questions:
- What are my options after high school? Personalized major and career maps help you explore a world of possibilities.
- What am I interested in studying? Our Interest Inventory helps you identify which majors might be a good fit.
- What schools should I consider? Search for schools by location, type, majors offered, cost, and more—and then discover educational, scholarship, career, and financial aid opportunities by choosing “Be Discovered.”
