Retest Exception Request
To maintain the security of the test, ACT restricts the number of times an examinee may take the ACT to a total of 12 times. This restriction applies even if your scores from a test date are cancelled by you or by ACT. In calculating the 12-test total, ACT makes exceptions for testing required by your local department of education or your school network.
