May 5 Registration Deadline For ACT
The next nationwide ACT test date for college-bound high school students is Saturday, June 10, 2006. Students must register online or have their paper registrations postmarked by May 5.
Late registration postmark deadline is May 19 with an additional late fee.
The June test date is popular for high school juniors. Around two-thirds of test takers for the June test have just completed eleventh grade. This strategy allows students to check their scores during the summer and decide whether to re-test in the fall or winter of their senior year. ACT allows students to report only the scores that they want for colleges. The ACT includes an optional Writing Test, with an additional fee. Most colleges do not require a writing score, so students should check the admissions requirements of colleges they're considering before registering for the ACT.
Students can receive registration information from their high school guidance counselors, or register online at www.actstudent.org. The website also features test tips, practice tests, an online test prep program, and a database for students to find out if a prospective college requires a writing score.
