If you are the parent of a student who will be taking the ACT on a national test date, make sure your student follows the new ACT test security requirements.
Please help your student upload or submit (via ACT website, mobile device, or mail) a recognizable head-and-shoulders photo of himself or herself when registering for the ACT.
The photo will be printed on your student's admission ticket, which he or she is required to bring to the test center in order to be admitted. Your student also needs to bring and present an acceptable photo ID on test day.
Your student's photo will be printed on the examinee roster that testing staff use to check in students on test day. Staff will match the name and photo on the student's admission ticket, the test center roster, and the student's photo ID before admitting the student.
In addition to helping your student meet the ACT photo requirements, please also review with him or her other test day rules, such as what to bring to the test center, expected behavior on test day, which calculators are permissible, and whether mobile phones can be used.
With a little help in advance from you, your student's test day experience can go smoothly and successfully. Check ACT's list of FAQs for more information.
