ACT registration deadlines

A growing number of UCC students are submitting ACT scores in support of applications to US colleges. You may still be able to secure a standby spot for the September 12 test date if you register before September 4. You should be sure to register by Friday, September 18 for the October 24 sitting. The registration deadline for the December 12 sitting is Friday, November 6. Online registration is completed at act.org. Students can write any of the three fall tests at St. Andrew’s in Aurora; Queen’s Collegiate in Mississauga hosts the October and December tests; Silverthorn Collegiate in Etobicoke is a test centre in December.

If you miss the registration deadline, you will need to request a standby place online during the “Standby Request Period” (which ends a week before the actual test date). You must bring your standby ticket and photo ID to the test centre; be sure to arrive early!
