Introducing Section Retesting, Superscoring, and Faster Results with Online Testing 

Get Acquainted with the Updates, Arriving September 2020

More choices, a better experience, and greater confidence. It’s all happening this September.

Section Retesting

Retake one specific test section rather than the full test.

Save time. Focus on what matters. Starting September 2020, ACT Single-section retesting will be available for all students who have taken the full ACT test®.


Keep your best single-section scores from each attempt.

Take the best from each test. With ACT Superscoring, students can submit the average of their highest section scores for college admission and scholarship purposes.

Faster Results with Online Testing

Test online and get results in as little as two business days.

The wait is over. Students will now be able to choose between taking the ACT on paper or online at an ACT test center for faster results. 

How the New Options Matter to You

Students and Parents

Starting in September 2020, students will will have more choices than ever, plus greater confidence that the ACT test reflects their hard work, overall academic achievement, and potential for success.

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.
