So you want to sign up for the ACT, but you have several concerns first. Are you worried that you are not ready for the ACT and if you sign up now, you won't have enough time to prepare completely? Can I afford the ACT fees? I don't have internet service, how do I sign up?
1. When to sign up for the ACT
You might want to give yourself plenty of time to prepare for the ACT prior to taking it. I suggest that you take a practice test first. You can get yourself a study guide with tests, or use one of the practice tests found on act.org website. Then figure out how long you will want to study prior to signing up for the ACT.
2. Sign up using a packet
These are perfectly normal questions when signing up for the ACT. If you don't have internet, don't worry, you can still sign up for the ACT. If you go to a high school, you can go to your high school guidance counselor and request a packet. If you are home schooled and want to get a packet without going through the local high school, request a packet using the information above.
3. Use the Internet
If you decide to use the internet go to www.actstudent.org for more information. Here is what you will need in order to sign up online:
4. Need Accommodations?
Do you have an IEP or need special accommodations for the test to work for you? You must think about these issues prior to signing up for the ACT. You can either call 319-337-1332 or act.org for more information.
Here's how to sign up for accommodations on the ACT:
There are several costs in addition to the test cost that you might want to think about.
6. When is the ACT covered in 2017-2018 school year?
The ACT is offered seven times this year which is more than it has been offered in the past. You can go to act.org for more information about late registration.
7. How often can I take the ACT?
You can take the ACT 12 times at most. However most students take the ACT 1-2 times. Colleges used to not encourage students to take it more than 1x but colleges have realized that students who take the ACT more often are more dedicated to working hard and earning a good score instead of those that don't.
Once you have figured out how long you need to study and signed up for the ACT, you can set up a study plan that will help you focus your studying and keep you on track. This can be done with the same study guide you used for a practice test or by getting yourself a tutor.
