A comprehensive application package that includes ACT scores, strong essays, and GPA helps colleges get a full picture of their applicants. The ACT is a metric colleges trust to guide admissions, enrollment, and scholarship decisions.
Students who meet ACT benchmarks are more likely to graduate.
The ACT helps advisors place students in classes at the right level, right from the start.
The ACT takes less time than the other test.
Format and familiarity matter, and the SAT has longer sections than the ACT. An ACT practice test can help students discover if shorter, streamlined test sections work best for their style and goals.
Don’t limit your options, discover the ACT advantage.
An ACT score report shows students where they’re strong, areas they can improve, and how likely they are to meet the academic expectations at their dream school. When college applications include the ACT, they include a fuller picture of student success.
