Changes in the ACT registration policy & proecedures.

Changes in the ACT registration procedures begin with October exam


ACT Photo Requirements

If you register for the October 2012 national test date, or a later test date, you are required to submit a photo of yourself for identification purposes. The photo will be printed on your ticket and on the score report ACT sends to your high school. Your photo will be valid for two years from the date it is added to your ACT record.

The photo must meet the following requirements:

  • Your photo must be a clear image of you—and only you—against a plain background.
  • You must be facing the camera.
  • You cannot wear dark glasses.
  • If you wear a head covering daily for religious reasons, adjust it to provide a full-face view.
