Registering for the ACT

Create an ACT account if you have not already done so.
Creating an account will take you through multiple steps that will ask for personal information and a username and password. These pieces are required. When creating an account, you will also be asked to share parental information in order for you parents to receive information regarding tests dates and other information. It is up to you whether or not you want to share parental information.
