General ACT Test Information:

The ACT is a national college admissions examination that consists of subject area tests in:


The ACT with writing includes the four subject area tests plus a 40-minute writing test.

The test is taken in a paper test booklet. Starting in 2021, students will also be able to test on the computer in test centers. ACT results are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the US.

As a whole, the ACT includes 215 multiple-choice questions and takes approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes to complete, including a short break (or just over four hours if you are taking the ACT with writing). Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes (plus 40 minutes if you are taking the ACT with writing).

In 2021, ACT will introduce Section Retesting. After having completed one full-length official ACT, it will then be possible to complete particular sections of the test on future test dates. Students can select one, two, or three sections to take during the registration process. All Section Retesting will be done on the computer.

The ACT is routinely administered on seven test dates within the US, US territories, Puerto Rico, and Canada. In other locations, the ACT is administered on five test dates.

The basic registration fee includes score reports for up to four college choices, if you list valid codes when you register.
