The following chart displays the upcoming test dates for the ACT. We encourage parents and students to take note of all the deadlines and prepare for the test ahead of time. Your child will be best prepared for the ACT if they are familiar and comfortable with the test content beforehand.
It is also important to research the application and test deadlines for the colleges and universities your child is applying to. Some institutions have different deadlines for test scores and application forms. Moreover, colleges and universities generally take several weeks to process your child’s test scores. We encourage parents and students to plan accordingly. Your child should give themselves enough time to take their exams and send their score reports before application deadlines pass.
