Tuesday, November 15 is the new late registration deadline!

The December ACT delivers scores in time to meet your students’ needs.

Register by November 15 for the ACT® test on December 10.

Encourage your students to register for the December 10 ACT test. The late registration window closes November 15th; late fees apply after November 4.

Plan Ahead for Success!
There are 5 remaining opportunities to take the ACT in the 22/23 school year (Friday, November 4 is the next deadline). Make sure your students are aware:
  • They can get their Test Information Release (their answer document, more info below) when they test in December, April, or June.
  • They can take a free interest inventory and discover their career/interest fit when they create a MyACT account. There is no obligation to register for the test, just head to the “plans” tab to start discovering insights!
  • FAQ About the Test Information Release (TIR)
  • MyACT – Take a Free Interest Inventory!

What is Test Information Release?

By purchasing Test Information Release (TIR), you will receive a digital copy of the multiple-choice test questions, your answers, a copy of your answer document, the answer key, and the conversion table used in determining your ACT scores. If you took the optional writing test, you will receive a copy of the writing prompt, the writing test scoring rubric, and your essay scores.

You can expect digital TIR materials to be provided within MyACT a few weeks after your score release. If you requested and were approved for alternate formats (April testing only), these materials will be prepared once your TIR report is available in MyACT and may take up to eight weeks for processing and shipping.

Note: These materials are the confidential copyrighted property of ACT, Inc., and may not be copied, reproduced, sold, scanned, emailed, or otherwise transferred without the prior express written permission of ACT, Inc.

Who is eligible for a Test Information Release?

TIR is only offered to:

  • Examinees who test through National testing at a National test center, on a National test date in either December, April, or June.
  • Examinees who register for the April test date and test through ACT Special testing during the designated Special Testing Window in the US, US territories, and Puerto Rico. You will also be able to request TIR materials in any alternate formats you were approved for.
  • This service is not offered for any other administrations of the ACT. See MyACT for eligible dates.
  • If for any reason we replace the test version scheduled for use at your test center or reschedule the administration, this offer becomes void, and we will refund your fee for this service. This service is not offered for any other administrations of the ACT.

The Governor's School for Entrepreneurs (GSE) will begin accepting applications for summer 2023 on Monday, Nov. 14. Deadline for submission is Monday, Jan. 23, 2023. GSE brings teens together from around the state of Kentucky, immerses them in a creative space, and arms them with the tools they need to unleash their entrepreneurial spirits. While all participants gain vital entrepreneurial skills through the program to use as they enter the workplace or continue into higher education, 20+ new businesses have already been launched by young alumni of the GSE program. Others have filed for multiple patents and developed new ideas and relationships that sow the seeds for more business formation. In addition, as a direct result of their participation in GSE, entrepreneurs qualify for some $5 million in scholarship opportunities from Kentucky's universities and colleges.

GSE has scheduled virtual info sessions this fall for prospective applicants and their families to showcase the GSE experience and dive into the application process. The link to register is below, as well as the schedule for events.
