ACT scores are accepted or preferred by more four-year colleges than any other college entrance and placement exam. ACT scores are accepted at all Ivy League colleges. The test fee is $22. Colleges use ACT scores, along with a student's high GPA and other information to help determine admissions and the appropriate course placement for new students.

For information, including registration forms and test locations, contact your high school or register online on ACT's Web site at www.act.org. The Web site also has information, sample tests and the opportunity to order test prep materials.

There are four sections to the exam: English, reading, math and science reasoning. Students who take the exam more than once can report their highest composite score to prospective colleges.
