Registration open for April 13 ACT at NHS

IOWA CITY — Registration is now open for the April 13 administration of the ACT college and career readiness exam. Students who want to take the exam on this date must register by March 8.

Students can register online at www.actstudent.org or by mail. Paper registration forms can be obtained from school counselor offices or by requesting a registration packet from ACT. Students must submit a photo of themselves to register for the exam.

The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam. It measures the academic skills and knowledge that students have learned in school and need to know to be ready for first-year college courses.

The ACT comprises four multiple-choice subject tests-English, mathematics, reading and science-and takes about three hours, plus breaks, to complete. An optional writing test, which takes an additional 30 minutes, is also available. Students who want to take the writing portion should register for the ACT Plus Writing. 

The cost to take the ACT (with no writing test) is $35. The cost to take the ACT Plus Writing is $50.50. Fee waivers are available to qualified students who can’t afford the registration fee.
