ACT Test Dates 2017-2018

It's time to start thinking about the ACT again!

Seniors, the time is now! Our Mississippi 4 year colleges will typically accept ACT scores through December and/or February. Check with the college(s) to which you are applying. Our community colleges will accept scores all year long; however, they do have deadlines for some of their scholarships. You can choose for up to 4 colleges to receive your ACT score without any additional costs, so CHOOSE 4 COLLEGES! A college will never hold your scores against you, so if you did better on a previous test, no big deal. What matters is that the college receives all official scores. How is an ACT score official? Well, when the score comes directly from ACT. Great question!

Check out the dates and deadlines below to decide what options are best for you. If a junior or senior receives free or reduced lunch, they may use a waiver for the ACT twice. See me or Mrs. Tammy for a waiver.

You will actually go to the ACT website to register!

Good Luck!
