ACT is committed to serving examinees with documented disabilities by providing reasonable accommodations appropriate to the examinee's diagnosis and needs. ACT has established policies regarding documentation of an examinee’s disability. If you currently receive accommodations in school due to a professionally diagnosed and documented disability, see the ACT Policy for Accommodations Documentation, which will prepare you and guide you through the process of requesting test accommodations on the ACT test. To request accommodations and/or EL supports visit the ACT Accomodations webpage.
ACT recognizes the need to expand access to English learners. Beginning in the fall of 2017, ACT will provide supports on the ACT test to U.S. students who are English learners. These supports are designed to improve access and equity for those students whose proficiency in English might prevent them from fully demonstrating the skills and knowledge they have learned in school. The number of English learners is growing in our country and ACT is committed to improve access and opportunity for them and all underserved learners.
If you currently receive supports in school due to limited English proficiency, see the ACT Policy for English Learner Supports Documentation, which will prepare you and guide you through the process of requesting English learner supports on the ACT test.
