ACT score sending time?

Hey everyone! So, I recently took the ACT and I've requested my scores to be sent to the colleges on my list. Does anyone know how long does it usually take for ACT to send the scores to colleges? I wanna make sure my scores reach the schools on time. Thanks in advance!

Hi there! Typically, the ACT sends out scores electronically to colleges within 1-2 business days after you request them. However, it may take slightly longer if your test scores need to be verified or other issues arise during the score-sending process.

Once the scores have been sent from the ACT, it's up to the colleges to process and input them into their systems. This can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on the college and the time of year.

To ensure your scores reach the schools on time, it's a good idea to keep track of each college's score submission deadlines and request your scores to be sent as early as possible. You can also periodically check the application portals or contact the admissions offices of the colleges you've applied to in order to confirm that they have received your scores. Remember that deadlines for score submission may vary based on factors like Early Decision, Early Action, Regular Decision, or Rolling Admissions, so always double-check the specific deadlines for each school on your list!
