The next ACT test will be administered on October 27, 2007. Students who wish to take the college admission and placement exam must register by September 21 - the deadline for having the registration postmarked.
There is an additional late registration postmark deadline of October 5, however, an extra fee is charged for late registrations. Students can register online at www.actstudent.org, or pick up registration forms from high school counseling offices.
The cost is $30 for the traditional ACT and $44.50 for the ACT Plus Writing. Some colleges require ACT's optional Writing Test score while many don't, so students should find out the requirements of prospective colleges before registering for the exam. ACT scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the United States.
ACT's website ( www.actstudent.org ) has helpful information, sample tests and the opportunity to order inexpensive test preparation materials.
The ACT is given in all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Puerto Rico and Canada, in October, December, February, April and June. The next testing date is Dec. 8.
