Services for Students with Disabilities

ACT is committed to serving students with disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations appropriate to the student’s diagnosis. ACT has established policies regarding documentation of an applicant’s disability and the process for requesting accommodations. For details, see ACT Policy for Documentation to Support Requests for Test Accommodations on the ACT.

If you currently receive accommodations in school due to a professionally diagnosed and documented disability, you may submit documentation to support a request for one of the following:

  • Center Testing #2: Extended Time National Testing (50% time extension). Approved students taking the ACT (No Writing) have up to 5 hours total to work on all four multiple-choice tests at their own pace. Approved students taking the ACT Plus Writing have up to 5 hours and 45 minutes to complete all five tests. Both options include time for breaks between tests.
  • Special Testing: Testing at school with extended time and alternate formats available—notas part of national or international testing at a test center.

The basic fees for all forms of testing are the same. Read the information about each to determine which one to choose and follow that application or request process carefully. Refer to thecomparison chart to review the requirements and features of Extended Time National Testing and Special Testing to decide which is most appropriate for you.

If you have already been approved for Extended Time National Testing, you may request a test date change or register to take the test again.

ACT will treat all information you provide to support your request as confidential and will use it solely to determine your eligibility for accommodations. Details about your test accommodations will be shared only with the testing staff and will not be released to anyone else, including your chosen score report recipients.

The ACT and ACT Plus Writing are offered only in English. Accommodations (including extended time) are not available solely on the basis of limited English proficiency.

Standby Testing

If you missed the final registration deadline for your test date, you can try to test standby on test day. Follow the instructions on this page carefully.

What You Need to Know

  • Testing as a standby costs $41.00 in addition to the basic fee for your test option. (Students testing outside the United States, U.S. territories, Puerto Rico or Canada are also billed the $26.00 international surcharge.)
  • You are not guaranteed admission.
  • Test center schedules are subject to change. To find out which test centers are currently scheduled to test on your test date, check the list of test centers.
  • Test centers admit standbys on a first-come, first-admitted basis and only if there are seats, materials, and staff available after all registered students have been admitted for their test option.
  • Because advance arrangements are required, students requiring accommodations due to a disability cannot test as standbys.
  • You will not be able to add, change, or cancel score reports.
  • If you are admitted and begin testing (break the seal of the test booklet), you will be billed for all fees even if you do not complete all your tests.
  • If you are trying to test standby for a Sunday or Monday test center, you must bring a letter from your cleric or a notarized statement to verify your religious beliefs prohibit Saturday testing. You will not be admitted without it.
  • Scores for standby students take longer. Scores cannot be reported until both the standby request submitted at the test center and the answer document have been processed and computer matched.

What You Must Do Before Test Day

Web option—Complete a Standby Request Form

  1. Create an ACT Web account and write down the ACT ID you are assigned.(If you already have an ACT Web Account, sign into your account and then choose “Manage Your Profile” to look up your 8-digit ACT ID.)
  2. Download and print the Standby Request Form.
  3. Fill out the entire form completely and accurately. If you do not provide an accurate and legible ACT ID, you will not receive scores, even if you are inadvertently admitted to test.
  4. Read the terms and conditions for registering.
  5. Review information about test day procedures so you know what to expect and whether your calculator is permitted.
  6. Sign in to your ACT Web account, choose “Manage Your Profile,” and provide responses about your future plans, your high school courses, student profile, and interest inventory. These sections are designed to help you think about your educational future and to help colleges in their planning. The deadline to provide or update this information to be included on score reports to colleges is 12 noon central time on Thursday immediately after the regularly scheduled Saturday test date.

Folder option—Complete an ACT Register by Mail Packet (Available ONLY in the U.S., U.S. Territories, Puerto Rico, and Canada)

  1. Get an ACT Register by Mail packet from your high school.
  2. Complete and sign the folder as instructed in Registering for the ACT by Mail.
    If the folder is not completed, you will not receive scores even if you are inadvertently admitted to test.
  3. Seal your folder in the envelope and print your name and address clearly in the return address box.

What You Must Do On Test Day

  1. Arrive at the test center before 8:00 a.m. with your completed standby request form (or packet).You will not receive scores if you do not submit one of these items even if you are inadvertently admitted and allowed to test.
  2. Bring acceptable identification. You will not be admitted to test without it.
  3. Do NOT bring payment to the test center. If you are admitted to test, ACT will bill you the appropriate fees.
