ACT Registration: Comprehensive information on registering your child.

ACT Registration – The Basics

Are you ready to register your child for the ACT? Here’s the basic information you need to know about the ACT registration process.

  • Students may register online at the ACT website or via a postal mail registration packet. International students must register online.
