ACT initially prepares three reports when you take the ACT: student report, high school report, and college/scholarship agency report.
Student report. First is your student score report. It is mailed to the address you provided on your registration. Student score reports are mailed three to eight weeks after you took the test. Your student score report is valuable. Put it in a safe place, but don’t forget to use it. The score report contains valuable information on college and career planning.
High school report. Your high school will also receive a report if you authorized it when you registered. High school counselors may use the information to help you plan appropriate coursework supporting your college and career goals. Schools also use this information to plan courses. Some schools include your test score on your official transcript. The high school report also contains your score and college and career planning information.
College/scholarship agency report. When you register for the ACT, you can choose four colleges or scholarship agencies to have your scores sent to for free. You can select two more for an additional fee. This report includes the same information found on the student and high school reports, high school grades you reported, and performance predictions for specific college programs and courses. This is the same report that will be sent to additional schools and agencies you choose at a later date.
All three reports are sent three to eight weeks after you take the test. There is no way to speed up the scoring of your test or reporting of your scores.
