ACT

Juniors and seniors can take the ACT. Many colleges use ACT scores as part of their admissions process.

HOW TO REGISTER: You can register for the ACT at www.actstudent.org. This site includes testing and registration dates, as well as fee information. NOTE: You must upload a photo to the website to be admitted to the test.

FEES: The ACT also provides fee waivers to students who meet the eligibility requirements, which include free and reduced lunch, residing in a foster home, or 21st Century Scholars. Remember you are only able to receive two waivers total, one each school year. Funds are limited, however, and once they have been exhausted, requests for waivers will be denied. You can find all of this information at www.actstudent.org

Any student who is eligible for free or reduced lunch, resides in a foster home, or receives any other kind of federal assistance is eligible for a fee waiver for the SAT. Students are only given two fee waivers for the SAT test (one for junior year and one for senior year.) Funds are limited, and once they have been exhausted, requests for waivers will be denied. Please feel free to contact the Guidance Department with any questions. Information on standard fees is available at the ACT website
