Last ACT test date for 2021 apps?


I am applying this fall, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, both my test dates were canceled. Since one of the schools I'm applying to strongly recommends ACT, I had signed up for it. However, because of the uncertainty, I haven't signed up for the next test date. If I'm applying for Early Action (Common App), when would be the last test date I can take?

That would be a September or October test date. At the latest, you should take an ACT on either the September 19th test date or October 10th in order to get back your score in time to submit on your application.
