Pre-testing Activities:

When students take the ACT, they are asked to complete the Non-Testing portion prior to test day. This is done by creating an online MyACT account. Whether completing the information for the first time, or updating (for those who already have a MyACT account), completing the non-testing portion allows examinees to:

  • Receive their scores 11-14 days faster than waiting for paper scores to be mailed.
  • Select up to four FREE score recipients
  • Gain opportunities for scholarships they may not be aware of if they choose to participate in ACT's Educational Opportunity Service
  • Utilize resources for college and career planning

Instructions for students to set up their MyACT account and complete the non-testing portion of the ACT will be emailed prior to exam day. This process requires a unique code assigned to each individual student. Students will receive their unique code in their academic lab homeroom along with a set of instructions on how to set up their account. The ACT Guide referred to in the instructions can be found here.  

For a complete list of the questions asked and to view the information gathered by ACT during this process, please refer to this website published by ACT. If at any time a student doesn't know an answer or feels uncomfortable providing ACT with the requested information, they are free to skip the question.

Instructions on how to set up your MyACT account:

How do I get my score?

  • Create your online MyACT account to be able to access your scores online. 
  • Scores will be mailed home by ACT to students within 3-8 weeks after testing. Students do not all get their scores at the same time, so please be patient. If after 8 weeks, you have not received your scores, you should contact ACT.
