When should I take the ACT?

Most high school students take the ACT or SAT—or both—during the spring of their junior year or fall of their senior year. It's important to leave time to re-take the test if you need to further increaseyour score before you apply to college.

The ACT exam is offered nationally every year in September, October, December, February*, April, June, and July*. View all upcoming ACT test dates.
