Simple steps to register for the ACT test

When you are ready to take the ACT test, the first step is registering for your chosen test date. To complete the registration process, you will need:

  • About 30 minutes
  • A credit card, voucher, or fee waiver
  • A functional email address
  • A list of grades and courses you have taken

To get started, you will need to create a MyACT account. The video below will take you through the process of setting up a MyACT account.

Once your MyACT account is created, it’s time to register for the test! The video below gives you step-by-step instructions on how to register.

NOTE: If you have taken the ACT before September 2018 and want to retake the test, you cannot use your old ACT account to retake the test (you can use it to access your scores from tests taken before September 2018, however). Be sure to create a MyACT account if you want to retest.

We have created an infographic to help you register and access your score reports, whether you took the computer- or paper-based ACT tests. You can also contact act-reg@act.org with any questions involving registration or test scores.
