ACT has recently introduced new policies designed to enhance test security. These changes will impact all students taking the ACT and all test center staff and involve important ID requirements. You must bring an ACT approved form of identification the day of the exam; examples include a driver's license, official school ID with photo (not laminated), or current passport. If you do not have a proper ID, you may also get an official ACT ID form from your school counselor or college office’s school official. This form must be filled out properly with a school/notary seal.    You must have uploaded a current picture when registering so that it will be on your admission tickets and the ACT roster.  Please note an admission ticket is NOT an ID. When checking in on the morning of your ACT exam, your names on the admission ticket, ID, and official ACT roster must match.  Again, you must have proper ID when checking in that morning.   For Late Registration or Standby request, sign up online.  For more information, please go to the ACT's official website or read the information in your ACT packet from guidance or call ACT.

Info regarding taking the ACT, buying back the ACT, and more also follows here.


When registering for ACT and thereafter, please pay attention to details including your emails from ACT for any changes to your test site including those COVID-related as that is usually how ACT contacts you. Your MyACT account and admission ticket contain important info too.

In the event of extreme inclement weather, you check the school’s social media pages to see if the ACT has been canceled or your MyACT account or email. Only ACT has the authority to reschedule an ACT.

2. Please arrive before 8:00 a.m. Testing begins at 8 a.m.

      Arriving by 7:45 allows you to find your test room, use the restroom, sharpen pencils, etc.

3.  You must have acceptable identification to enter (examples include driver's license or school ID) and your admission ticket is advised for faster test scores.  See the test registration information or ACT's website for more information.

The college office can help you too.

Requesting a Copy of Your Test Questions and Answers:

If you order and pay for a Test Information Release (TIR) form and test at a national test center on a national test date that offers this service, you will receive a list of your answers, a copy of the multiple-choice test questions used to determine your score, the answer key, and scoring instructions. (If you took the Writing Test, you will also receive a copy of the writing prompt, the scoring rubric, and the scores assigned to your essay by two readers.) Your copy will arrive via pdf in your MyACT account a few weeks after the exam. You will usually receive an email as well when it is ready to download and view. Information about ordering a photocopy of your answer document (including your essay if you took the Writing Test) for an additional fee will be included with your materials.

See current test fees at www.act.org/content/act/en/products-and-services/the-act/registration/fees.html for details about additional fees (a TIR was $30 prior to exam and $40 if ordered after taking the exam).

Which test dates offer this service? If you take the ACT at a national test center on one of the national test dates listed below, you can order a TIR form when you register. or during the six-month period after your test date usually (if ordered after, there is an additional fee as noted above). This service is not offered on any other test dates or for any non-national administrations (for example: International, Special, state administered free exams).

Upcoming 2022-2023 Saturday National Testing Dates that Test Information Release is offered for these exams:

Saturday, December 10, 2022

Saturday, April 15, 2023

Saturday, June 10, 2023

If for any reason the ACT has to replace the test version scheduled for use at your test center or reschedule the administration, this offer becomes void and ACT will refund your fee for this service.

The fastest and best way to receive a TIR is to register online when you register for your ACT exam (best, cheapest, and fastest way). But again, you can order up to six months after one of the above test dates through your MyACT account: https://my.act.org/account/signin?location=https://my.act.org. You will then receive your TIR as a pdf file in your MyACT account a few weeks after taking the ACT as they are no longer printed and mailed. At that point, you can see what you got wrong and what you missed. This is a great tool to help you work on improving your skills and ACT score. Many WCHS teachers are ready to help you analyze your results and help you improve! Advisory time would be a great time to work on improving your ACT score as well.

The ACT now has a Test Prep Tool to help you study. This is available for free  only if you qualify for a fee waiver. For more info, see the ACT pdf below, visit ACT.org, or guidance.
