What is my ACT ID and why is it important?

If you register for an ACT National or International Test Date, we will automatically assign you an ACT ID at the time of registration. If you test through any other testing program (e.g., State and District, Special, Arranged, or DANTES), we assign an ACT ID when your answer document is scored.

The ACT ID is an eight-digit number beginning with a dash that is located at the top of your Student Report and also appears on the score reports we send to the high school and to any colleges you requested. The ACT ID helps us identify your record and allows you to access and order ACT services. (For example, if you wish to send your scores, correct information on your score reports, or create an ACT Web account.)

If you test through State and District, Special, Arranged, or DANTES Testing, you can view your scores and score report online after you receive your score report in the mail. All you need to do is create or log in to your ACT Web account. You must provide the ACT ID printed on your score report to access your scores.
