What if I miss the deadline to register?

If you missed the regular ACT registration deadline, you can still register during the late registration period.


The late registration period typically extends for 14 days following the regular registration deadline. For the latest information, visit here.


You will have to pay a late registration fee of US$29.50 (on top of the regular registration fee).


The late registration process is the same as the regular registration process. See our instructions above on how to register for the ACT exam.
