In response to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, the ACT and College Board have rescheduled upcoming ACT and SAT test dates to keep students safe and healthy.

ACT Changes

The April 4, 2020, test date has been moved to June 13, 2020. Students registered for the April 4th test date will be given the option of rescheduling to June 13th or to a future test date. The ACT will be sending registered students an email in the next few days with instructions on how to reschedule.

The Future of ACT Tests
Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, The ACT announced that online testing at testing centers will be available starting with the September 2020 test date.

You can find more information about these changes on the ACT website here.

SAT Changes

The May 2, 2020, and June 6, 2020 test dates have been canceled. As of right now, the fall test dates in August, September, October, November, and December are still scheduled. Students can begin registering for these tests in May. Students who registered for the canceled June test will have access to early registration for the August, September, and October test dates.

The Future of SAT Tests
If students are able to return to school in the fall, many states and large districts may administer the SAT during the school day. States and districts that do participate in school-day testing would be able to offer free testing for all of their students.

If students are not able to return to school in the fall, the SAT will be available as a digital test to take at home.

You can find more information about these changes on the College Board website here.
