ACT Summer Test Date Options and Test-at-Home Remote Proctoring FAQs

In response to uncertainty and school cancellations due to COVID-19, ACT announced it will offer a flexible schedule for summer 2020 test dates and test-at-home options for fall/winter 2020. Please check this page as FAQs are added.

We are committed to providing as many opportunities as possible for students to take the ACT test, particularly now as other admission information, such as grades, courses, and GPAs, may be missing or partial.

As CDC and local guidelines for safety allow, ACT will offer national test dates on June 13 and July 18. If a test center is not able to open on the national test date, a makeup test date will be provided a week later. The makeup test date for the June 13 national test date will be June 20, and the makeup test date for the July 18 test date will be July 25.

Our primary concern is the health and safety of students and our testing staff.

We are watching conditions very closely. We will announce test site changes if we see conditions where we're not able to have the test, as scheduled. We will continue to update our website with the latest information.

Starting in the late fall of 2020/early winter, ACT will introduce a new option allowing students to take the ACT test at their home on a computer through remote proctoring as part of its national testing program. More information about this option will be available in the coming weeks.

... starting in September 2020?

Yes. ACT will be offering its new individual section retest option, online testing with faster results and superscoring this fall, as previously announced for those students who wish to retake one or more sections of the exam.
