ACT Score Report Descriptions

ACT will send score reports to the colleges requested by the student, to the student’s high school, and to the student. Each of these reports is mailed within a specific time frame and each contains specific information.

There are three types of reports prepared for each student: the Student Report, the High School Report, and the College Report. The Student Report is sent to the student at the mailing address they provide on their registration. It is mailed three to seven weeks after the student takes the ACT. This report conveys the ACT score and it provides information on how to select a college and choose a career path.

The High School Report is mailed to the student’s high school. This is only done if the student authorized it on their registration. The High School Report is mailed three to seven weeks after the test. Like the Student Report, the High School Report contains the ACT score as well as information on college selection and career planning.

The College Report is mailed to each college or scholarship agency selected by the student on their registration. The College Report can be sent to four colleges or organizations at no additional charge. Additional reports cost $8.50 each. College Reports are mailed three to seven weeks after the test. This report contains the ACT score, information on college selection and career planning, grades reported for up to 30 high school courses, and ACT’s predictions on how the student will perform in certain college courses or programs of study.
