ACT scores get sent to colleges through the ACT website or by the student requesting their scores to be sent to the specific colleges.
And now, more closely
ACT scores are an important part of the college application process. Sending them to colleges can be done through the ACT website or by the student requesting their scores to be sent to the specific colleges. Here’s how it works:
Sign up for the ACT: Before you can send your scores, you must have taken the ACT. You can register for the test on the ACT website.
Choose score sending options: When you register for the ACT, you can choose to send your scores to up to four colleges for free. After the test, you can also choose to send your scores to additional colleges for a fee.
Send your scores through the ACT website: You can send your scores to colleges through the ACT website. Log in to your ACT account and choose the option to send your scores. You will need to enter the names of the colleges you want to send your scores to and pay any additional fees.
Request scores to be sent to individual colleges: You can also request that your scores be sent to individual colleges directly. Contact the college’s admissions office to find out how to do this.
One interesting fact about sending ACT scores is that some colleges may require that you send your scores through the ACT website rather than directly to the college. This is because the ACT website can provide more detailed score reports.
Here’s a table summarizing the steps to send ACT scores:
|1||Sign up for the ACT|
|2||Choose score sending options|
|3||Send your scores through the ACT website|
|4||Request scores to be sent to individual colleges|
As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Sending your ACT scores to colleges is an important part of the education journey and can open doors to new opportunities.
See a video about the subject
The video teaches how to send ACT scores; for individual scores, students need to click “send this score”, select a category, choose the state, and add it to the cart, and for super score, the best score is automatically selected, but some schools may not accept it, with a cost of $16 per testing date per school. Self-reporting ACT and SAT scores is allowed on the Common App and Coalition Application, and students can self-report their highest scores and send scores later to save money.
Here are some more answers to your question
Colleges get your ACT scores when they are sent an ACT Score Report. ACT Score Reports are sent directly from ACT at your request.
How is the ACT scored?
- The ACT counts the number of correct questions on each section. Incorrect answers (so guess rather than leave a question blank!) do not penalize you.
- Raw scores are converted to scale scores.
You can have your ACT scores sent to other colleges and scholarship agencies, even after you test. Requests are processed after your tests have been scored and all scores for your test option—the ACT or the ACT with writing—are ready. If the score is available to be sent, it is usually sent the same day.
