How soon are scores ready?

Most scores are available for online viewing within 2 weeks after each national or international test date. Your scores are not reported any faster if you view them online. Score reports are normally released within 2 to 8 weeks from the testing date. Your writing scores will be posted online as soon as they are ready, normally about two weeks after your multiple-choice scores. Your scores are not officially reported until your writing scores have been added.

SCORE REPORTS AND TIMELINES

Three different reports are prepared for each student who tests—the Student Report, the High School Report, and the College Report. If you take the ACT with writing, an image of the essay you write may be available to the high school and colleges that receive your score report.

Type of Report Where It’s Delivered When It’s Delivered What It Reports
Student Report Your online ACT web account About 2–8 weeks after the test date ACT scores, college and career planning information
