ACT adds more Summer test dates, ramps up registration for June 13th test

Late last week, the College Board and ACT both released updates in response to COVID-19. Notably, the College Board confirmed they have cancelled their June 6th exam date and will resume testing in the Fall, potentially offering an online option for the first time.

The ACT, however, doubled down on plans to offer tests this Summer. Per an article in Inside Higher Ed found here, a spokesman said they're ADDING test dates in June and July to help make up for Spring cancellations.

"As CDC and local guidelines for safety allow, in addition to our planned June 13 and July 18 test dates, we will be offering new test dates on June 20 and July 25 to provide students with options to schedule and reschedule their registration."
– Ed Colby, ACT Spokesman

New marketing from the ACT shows they are indeed ramping up efforts to register students for Summer tests. We can see this in the screenshot above as well as on the registration page for their June 13th test, which you can see here.

Our advice to families and students in light of this? Take advantage. Take advantage of the time now to prep, and the opportunity to take the ACT while your prep program and schoolwork are still fresh. Furthermore, if plans proceed as the ACT projects, you may never have more flexibility with testing dates.
