The ACT is administered nationally on seven separate dates each year. Score Reports for students who took the ACT without writing (aka Multiple Choice) are normally reported as early as two weeks after the test date. See the national test dates here.
Score reports for students who took the ACT with writing will be released only after all their scores are available, normally within 5-8 weeks after the test date.
In states and districts that administer the ACT to all students as part of a contracted agreement, test dates will be determined between the state or district and ACT. Scores for these students are normally reported to students 2-8 weeks after testing.
Score Reports may take additional time to process and deliver if:
- answer documents arrive late
- discrepancies in student matching data
- unpaid student fees
Reporting of these records occurs after resolution in the next available Score Report to your organization.
Additional Score Reports
After a test administration, the student can request Additional Score Reports (ASR) to be sent to the college of their choice. Once the Additional Score Report is ordered, it is typically sent in the next cycle (currently every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday). If the score is more than 3 years old, it is archived and the process will take up to two weeks.
