ACT Cancellation | Do they cancel the test for bad weather?

ACT Cancellation – What to do if the weather is looking grim

Bad weather: it happens. If the weather is looking grim in your area, there is a possibility that your child’s ACT test center may close and cancel the test administration. To find out about ACT test cancellations, take the following steps:

  • Check the ACT website for center cancellations.
  • Check your local television or radio stations that typically report school closings. ACT test cancellations will be announced via these media stations.

If your child’s test center is closed, the ACT will reschedule the test date. Check the ACT website or contact the ACT at (319) 337-1510 to find rescheduled test date information. If your child misses a test date and the center was not officially closed, the registration fees are non-refundable. However, your child may be able to pay a fee to move to another test date. Contact ACT Registration at (319) 337-1270 during the days following the missed test date to review your child’s options.
