Some helpful tips for online ACT registration:

  • Select up to 4 colleges to receive your scores directly for free. **PLEASE NOTE: UNL and UNO require scores to be sent directly from ACT (if you do not select them during registration you'll have to pay an additional fee for ACT to send them later)
  • You will need to pay by credit card when registering online
  • You will need to upload your photo during registration, a school photo works great!
  • Make sure you receive a confirmation email stating that your payment and registration went through
  • As always, see Mrs. Knutson with any registration problems or questions!
