ACT Score Release Dates Information

So, you've taken the ACT and are wondering when you're going to get your ACT score, right? Well, there are a few details you need to know prior to checking out these ACT score release dates below.

First, your score reports won't start being posted until about two weeks after you've taken the exam, and for some of you, those scores won't be available until much later.

Some scores can take longer to be reported if, for instance, the personal information you provided on your answer sheet, like your name or birthday, does not match up with your admission ticket. That will set your score report dates back a bit. You can also be delayed in receiving your score reports if you have outstanding registration fees or if there was a delay receiving answer sheets from your testing center. 

Second, if you took the ACT Plus Writing test, then your Writing score will come about two weeks after your multiple choice scores are posted. Your scores will not be "officially" posted until your Writing score is reported, but you may view your multiple choice test scores prior to receiving your official scores. 

The ACT recommends that you check the website to see if your scores are available via your ACT Web Account on the first score release date for your ACT administration date.

The dates are listed below for your convenience. If you do not see your scores listed when you login to your account, simply wait a week (try not to chew your fingernails until they bleed) and check the website again. Since the ACT group processes scores on Wednesdays and Fridays, there will be differences in times when your scores are posted.

But, if you haven't received your scores eight weeks after your examination date, then you'll need to report it to ACT.org to ensure there hasn't been a mistake.
