New Fee Waiver and Score Sending Policies
Currently, students who take the ACT National test with a fee waiver can send their ACT score reports to up to 20 score recipients for free. Beginning in September 2020, 20 free score reports will be available for students who have taken the ACT with a fee waiver so they may send their superscore or scores from any individual test, even those taken previously during the ACT National Test and State and District Test.
ACT also now offers four fee waivers to all qualifying students. These students can choose how they apply the waivers to maximize their potential for success in retesting and test preparation. Counselors can request fee waivers on behalf of qualifying students.
