Did your child miss the regular and late registration deadlines for the ACT? If so, he or she can attempt ACT standby testing. Here’s what you need to know about what standby testing is and how it works.
- There is a $42 fee to test as a standby (in addition to the basic registration fee).
- Test centers admit standbys on a first-come, first-served basis and only if there are seats, materials, and staff available after all registered students have been admitted.
- A student could be turned away; there are no guaranteed seats or test booklets.
- To test as a standby, a student must bring his or her completed registration folder in a sealed registration envelope (obtained from the student’s school), including a check for the full amount (basic fee plus $42), and arrive at his or her preferred testing center no later than 8am.
