ACT (American College Testing)

ACT (American College Testing) Will Offer Free Score Reports to Low-Income Students Starting in September 2018  http://leadershipblog.act.org/2017/12/act-will-offer-free-score-reports-to.html

New policy reinforces ACT’s commitment to expanding access and opportunities for underserved students.

IOWA CITY, Iowa—Starting in September 2018, students from low-income families who take the ACT with fee waivers will be allowed to send ACT score reports for free to colleges and/or scholarship agencies at any time during their college search process.

Currently, students may elect to send their scores to up to four colleges or scholarship agencies for free during the registration process and up to five days after they take the test. After that point, the fee for each additional score report they send is $13.

ACT’s new policy will waive that fee for students who register for the test with a fee waiver. The free score reports—up to 20 for each test students take with a fee waiver—will never expire, so students may use them whenever they wish.

To be eligible for a fee waiver, a student must meet one or more indicators of economic need, such as being enrolled in a free or reduced-price lunch program. Eligible students may receive fee waivers for up to two ACT tests.

Juniors!  What you need to know

For Fall 2019 admission, The University of Texas at Austin will automatically admit eligible Texas students in the top 6 percent of their high school graduating class. This change to 6 percent is a result of the continued and future projected growth of high school graduates across the state.
