Deadline nears for October ACT

Thursday, September 11, 2008

The next ACT test will be administered on Oct. 25, and students who wish to take the college admission and placement exam must register by Sept. 19. Late registrations, with an additional fee, will be accepted until the final postmark deadline of Oct. 3.

Students can register on-line at or pick up registration packets from high school counseling offices. The cost is $31 for the traditional ACT and $46 for the ACT Plus Writing. Some colleges require or recommend ACT's optional Writing Test score, so students should find out the requirements of prospective colleges before registering for the exam.

ACT scores are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities in the United States. Additional information about registration for those with special needs can be found at Students in need of financial assistance should visit their school counselor for qualification information and to apply for a fee waiver.

ACT's website ( has helpful information, free sample tests and the opportunity to order inexpensive test preparation materials.
