What to bring on Test Day:

  • Your Printed Admission Ticket. You must bring a paper copy of your SAT or ACT admission ticket on test day. Images of your ticket on your cell phone or another device will not be accepted. Log into your ACT account to print your ticket (do the same for the SAT).
  • Your Photo ID. Your full name should match the name you registered with, and your picture should clearly resemble the picture you uploaded during registration.
    • Acceptable forms of ID include your current official school ID, your driver’s license, and your passport. If you don’t have any of these, you can also have a school official or notary fill out this official ACT Identification Letter Form. If you’re participating in ACT Talent Search, you should also present your talent search identification letter.
    • Unacceptable forms of ID include birth certificates, credit cards, employee IDs, Learner’s permits, and Social Security cards. You must have an ID with your admission ticket.

  • At Least Two #2 Pencils and an Eraser. Mechanical pencils, pens, highlighters, liquid paper, and any other writing utensils will not be accepted.
  • A Calculator. Most 4-function, scientific, and graphing calculators are permitted, with certain restrictions. Read expert tips on all the uses and limitations of your calculators here.

Other Suggested Items to bring on Test Day

  • Extra #2 pencils and a small handheld pencil sharpener. If you bring backup, you won’t have to worry about broken or worn down pencils. This is especially important if you’re taking the ACT Plus Writing and will be writing an essay.
  • Extra batteries for your calculator. Just as you need to ensure you have working pencils, you also don’t want to be left with a dead calculator. It’s a good idea to put in new batteries the day before the ACT and to make sure your calculator is working well.
  • Drinks and snacks for your breaks. You are not allowed to eat and drink within the testing room, but a drink and snacks will be a great way to energize during your breaks.
  • A watch with no noises or audible alarms. A watch may be a good way to help you keep track of time as you work through the sections.

What NOT to Bring on Test Day

  • Any technology besides your calculator, especially anything with communication or recording capabilities. Cell phones, laptops, tablets, and cameras, to name a few, are definitely not allowed in the testing room. Security is high around the ACT, and any signs of potential cheating could come under investigation. Bringing these things on test day could have devastating consequences, not just getting you kicked out and your scores canceled, but also destroying your chances of college admission.
    • If you must, must bring your cell phone, TURN IT OFF before testing begins.
  • Notes, textbooks, dictionaries, translators, or any additional papers.
  • Any writing utensil that’s not a #2 pencil.
