How long does it take for ACT scores to arrive?

Hey everyone, does anyone know how long it takes for ACT scores to be posted and sent to colleges? Just trying to manage my expectations over here. Thanks!

Hey there! After you take the ACT, your scores will usually be posted online within 2-3 weeks. It can sometimes take a bit longer depending on the test date and circumstances. Once the scores are available, they'll be sent to the colleges you selected. It takes about a week for colleges to receive your scores after they've been sent, though this may also vary.

So overall, you're looking at about 3-4 weeks for your scores to be processed, posted, and received by colleges. Just make sure you've selected the colleges you want to send your scores to, or you can send them later at an additional cost. Hope this helps set your expectations! Good luck!
